Memorial to Fallen KIA SEALs in Iraq and Afganistan

We honor those SEALs, and the Sailors who directly support them, who made the ultimate sacrifice. These warriors exemplify the very finest in Navy Special Warfare: unflinching under fire and unwavering in their commitment to the preservation of freedom. Each is due our sincerest gratitude and the respect and admiration of generations to come. Thank you for joining us in paying your respects.
