SEAL Team 6 member killed from Monroeville

Postby Digitalgypsy66 on Mon Dec 10, 2012 2:40 pm

The Pentagon has identified the Navy SEAL killed during the weekend rescue mission in Afghanistan as Petty Officer 1st Class Nicolas D. Checque of Monroeville, Pa.

A Defense Department statement says the 28-year-old Checque died of combat-related injuries but gave no further details of the mission. He was among members of SEAL Team Six, which freed an American doctor abducted by the Taliban.

It is the same team that killed Osama bin Laden last year, but it’s unclear whether Checque was on the bin Laden mission.

My father-in-law had an Air Force Honor guard for his funeral a few years ago. They're not as busy as their Army and Marine counterparts these days, but they were on their way to their third ceremony that day.

My fiance went to school with him through middle school and she graduated high school with him. She knew him fairly well.

So sad.
