RACINE A Racine soldier died late last week in Iraq, military officials announced Sunday.
Sgt. 1st Class Brian Naseman, 36, died Friday in Taji, Iraq, where he arrived last month as part of the 32nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team of the Wisconsin Army National Guard.
Naseman died of injuries sustained from a non-combat-related incident. The circumstances surrounding the incident are under investigation, according to a statement released by Brigadier Gen. Donald P. Dunbar, adjutant general of Wisconsin.
Naseman, a native of New Bremen, Ohio, lived in Racine with his wife, Peggy, and their two sons, Carter and Cole.

Naseman was a member of the 108th Forward Support Company that was attached to the 2nd Battalion, 127th Infantry.
He had previously deployed to Kuwait from November 2005 to November 2006 with 2nd Battalion, 128th Infantry.
Prior to his recent mobilization with the 32nd Brigade, Naseman was a full-time National Guard soldier in Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 257th Brigade Support Battalion, 157th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade.
To honor Naseman, Dunbar ordered the flags at all Wisconsin National Guard armories, air bases and other facilities lowered to half-staff beginning Tuesday and continuing until sunset on the day of his funeral service. Funeral arrangements are pending.
With all 10,000 of Sgt. 1st Class Nasemans fellow soldiers and airmen of Wisconsins National Guard, I salute his service to his community, state and nation, Dunbar said. I pray for the protection and safe return of all the soldiers and airmen of the Wisconsin National Guard now serving overseas in harms way.
Naseman was one of the 3,200 Wisconsin National Guard troops assigned to the 32nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team. The 32nd deployed in February as part of the largest operational deployment since World War II.
Naseman is the ninth member of the Wisconsin National Guard to die serving in Iraq, said Maj. Jackie Guthrie, public affairs director for the Wisconsin National Guard. Seven of the nine died in combat-related incidents.
Since Sept. 11, 2001, 110 service members soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines from Wisconsin or with ties to Wisconsin have died in Iraq.
In that same time, more than 14,000 members of the National Guard and Reserve have been called to active duty from Wisconsin communities, according to the states Department of Military Affairs.
