This is coolbert:
From USA Today NATION/WORLD:
"U.S. Navy SEAL dies at hands of ISIL"
"It's 3rd American combat death in Iraq since 2014"
"STUTTGART, GERMANY Islamic State militants killed as Navy SEAL in northern Iraq on Tuesday after they penetrated Kurdish defensive lines and launched at attack with small arms and car bombs."
As to the identity of the American SEAL killed:
"Family members identified the service-member killed as Navy SEAL Charles Humphrey Keating IV."
"He was the grandson of Charles Humphrey Keating Jr. a developer and financier best known for his role in the savings and loan scandal of the late 1980's."
It cannot be said that the offspring of the rich and famous/infamous in America shirk or eschew military service. EVEN SERVING IN A COMBAT CAPACITY OF THE MOST DANGEROUS SORT PERFORMING YEOMAN DUTY!!
And all condolences due the Keating family.
