Spc. Nicholas Roberts, 27, of 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, died Tuesday during a training jump over Sicily Drop Zone.
Airborne training has been halted at Fort Bragg until each unit under the 18th Airborne Corps has completed a refresher course at the Advanced Airborne School, military officials announced Thursday.
The decision follows a second death of an 82nd Airborne Division paratrooper in about two weeks. It does not affect special operations troops on Fort Bragg.
