Vandenberg AFB Identifies Airman Found Dead in Dorm

A 30th Space Wing airman found dead in his dormitory residence on base on Sunday has been identified.

The airman was identified as Airman First Class Bogui W. Yann, who was assigned to the 30th Security Forces Squadron here.

"Vandenberg AFB is grieving the loss of one of our own and my heartfelt condolences go out to Airman First Class Yann's family and friends," said Col. Keith Balts, 30th Space Wing commander. "Our focus now is to make sure A1C Yann's family and friends and all those affected at Vandenberg get the care and support they need. We have several resources available for  those who wish to take advantage of them during this difficult time."

The cause of death is under investigation.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
