”Two recruits learned that they had a rare blood disorder after they got to boot camp. It played a role in at least one of their deaths, according to autopsy reports obtained by Navy Times.
The same coroner’s office said Nobles’ death resulted from an irregular heartbeat caused by an inflamed heart. The report noted the presence of “few ‘sickle’ shaped blood cells,” as well as her history with sickle cell trait, but did not name it a significant contributor in her death nor did it indicate evidence of a crisis related to the disorder.” – NavyTimes
