(CNN) — The U.S. general killed in an attack at a training facility in Afghanistan Tuesday was Army Maj. Gen. Harold Greene, U.S. officials told CNN.

Pentagon spokesman Adm. John Kirby declined to identify Greene by name, but did offer a description of the deceased officer’s accomplishments during a CNN interview by stating that he was a “very experienced officer” with “a lot of staff tours.”

The slain officer was also an “expert in infrastructure improvement, logistics” and was a “leader there in the training command in Afghanistan,” Kirby said.
