A 21-year-old West Point Cadet was among those killed by flash flooding in Fort Hood, Texas last week.

The Army released the details late Saturday, saying Mitchell Winey was in a "light medium tactical vehicle" which overturned in the raging flood waters, killing him and eight other soldiers. 

Winey, who was from Indiana, was working on cadet troop leader training at the time.

He was scheduled to graduate in the class of 2018 as an engineering management major. 

West Point's Superintendent released a statement on Winey's death. He expressed his condolences to his family and said in part, "He was clearly a rising leader in his class and a friend to everyone who knew him. He internalized the ideals and values of West Point and exemplified them in all that he set out to do. Duty, honor, hountry were his touchstones."

The flooding in Texas has caused six deaths.

Areas near Houston remain underwater after two feet of rain fell last week.

The investigation is now in the hands of the Army's Criminal Investigation unit.

The Army spoke late last week about the commitment to the rescue mission.

"Part of our warrior ethos is that 'I will never leave a fallen comrade' and were it not for the professionalism and compassion of these emergency services personnel it would have taken us much longer to live up to our ethos," Maj. Gen.John Uberti said.
