A 45-year-old Arizona Army Reservist and Phoenix firefighter was found dead at his Arizona Army National Guard Base, reportedly having expired while on duty.

Juston Doherty had been on the department for 15 years, earning a medal for entering a burning building to save trapped children, being burned in the process.

In addition to his time on PFD, he was also an Army Captain who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, earning a Bronze Star, Combat Infantry Badge, Ranger Tab and other awards.

After doing his Active Duty stint, Doherty entered the National Guard and became a member of Phoenix Fire.

“He attacked everything in life full-on,” said Ryan Felker, a football coach of a local community college and friend of Doherty. “That’s what I remember most about him.”

According to AZCentral, details surrounding Doherty’s death are unknown at this time.

The department said it was assisting Doherty’s family “with all of their needs.”
