CAROLINA BEACH, N.C. — U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer Tania Nicole Dunbar was found dead at a campsite on the north end, the Port City Daily reported.

Recently re-deployed from Kuwait, she was camping alone on the beach where the incident occurred.

She apparently hit her head on a truck door handle and fell, town manager Michael Cramer shared. At press time, an autopsy report was not available.

She had been a founding member of SPARTA-An LGBT Military Organization. She is survived by a wife, Dee Graham-Dunbar, and two children. Graham-Dunbar is a cofounder of  the Military Partners and Families Coalition, an LGBT military group.
