An Air Force airman from Glen Burnie has died while serving in the fight against the self-declared Islamic State, the Pentagon said Saturday.

Airman First Class Nathaniel H. McDavitt, a 2011 graduate of Severna Park High School, died Friday of injuries sustained when extreme winds caused structural damage to the building in which he was working, the Pentagon said. He was 22.

McDavitt was in Southwest Asia as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, the Pentagon said.

McDavitt completed basic training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, in 2014. He was assigned to the 52nd Equipment Maintenance Squadron at Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany.

Family members declined to comment Saturday.
