My thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, children & Team mates.

We have lost another fine SEAL in a community that has already lost so many just this year.
RIP....and prayers for his family and those he served with left behind. No soldier/warrior loss is less important than the other, but this elite group has had more than their share the last 4 years for the size of their community.

Godspeed warrior....
