Fort Hood officials have released the name of another soldier found unresponsive in his home on post.

Sfc. Brian John Peckham was pronounced dead shortly before 4 a.m, Wednesday. The 38-year-old had been stationed at Fort Hood since September of last year.

Peckham served two tours overseas in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. He earned numerous awards and decorations, including two Bronze Stars, six Army Commendations and a combat action badge.

Fort Hood officials say they're still investigating the circumstances of his death.

Peckam is at least the 10th soldier to die on or near post recently. In September alone, eight soldier deaths were announced.

Of those, three were also found unresponsive in on-base housing.
