Pentagon identifies Navy SEAL killed in Somalia 38 yr old Kyle Milliken of Maine

I feel so bad for this Navy Seal and his family!
NY Post reports the Navy SEAL killed Friday in combat in Somalia was 38-year-old Kyle Milliken of Falmouth, Maine, the Defense Department said.

Milliken, a chief special warfare officer, died during an operation against the extremist Islamic militant group al-Shabaab in Somalia. The fighting took place in a remote area approximately 40 miles west of the Somali capital, Mogadishu, the US Africa Command said.

Two other Americans were reportedly wounded in the same firefight. A Pentagon spokesman said Friday that U.S. special operations troops had come under fire after U.S. aircraft delivered Somali forces to the target area.
