    Navy SEAL killed by ISIS in Northern Iraq, May 2016

    A U.S. Navy SEAL was killed in Iraq as a result of a "coordinated and complex attack" by roughly 100 ISIS fighters nearly 30 kilometers north of Mosul, Pentagon officials confirmed Tuesday.

    ISIS used multiple vehicles, suicide car bombs and bulldozers to break through a checkpoint at the front line and drive 3 to 5 kilometers to the Peshmerga base where SEALs are temporarily visiting and were located as advisers, a U.S. defense official told CNN. The gun battle was around the town of Telskof in northern Iraq, the official added.

    The SEAL's rank will not be disclosed until the identity is made public (...)

    God bless this great American, and prayers to his family as well.

    ​Charlie Keating IV, Grandson of Notorious Banker, Identified as Navy SEAL Killed by ISIS
    The U.S. Navy SEAL killed by direct fire during an ISIS-led siege in Iraq was identified Tuesday as Charlie Keating IV, a Phoenix high school graduate and grandson of the banker who came to symbolize America's savings and loan crisis of the 1980s.

    "Our state and nation are in mourning today over the loss of a U.S. serviceman and one of America's finest," Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said in a statement.
