A new member of the Maine Army National Guard has died during basic training at Fort Jackson in South Carolina.

Maine Gov. Paul R. LePage's office says Private Jordan Chase died Sunday morning from complications connected to a medical emergency.

Chase was born in Lewiston. He was a recent graduate of Gray/New Gloucester High School.

LePage says he joins all Maine residents in extending their deepest condolences to Chase's family. He says Chase was "in training to serve and defend us all." He says he's saddened by Chase's death.

Maine's U.S. Sen. Olympia J. Snowe says the 20-year-old's service "will live on in the collective heart of our grateful nation." She says he "answered our country's most honorable call" by joining the Maine Army National Guard.
