4 Pearl Harbor SEALs
to be remembered

The Navy plans to hold a memorial service tomorrow for four Pearl Harbor-based Navy SEALs killed in Afghanistan.

The men were members of the SEAL Delivery Vehicle Team 1. Three were killed when their Chinook helicopter was shot down June 28 by enemy fire in eastern Afghanistan.

The fourth Pearl Harbor SEAL was a member of a four-man commando team that went missing the same day.

The Navy said the 10 a.m. service at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu will be open to the public.

The SEALs who died in the helicopter crash were Senior Chief Petty Officer Daniel Healy of Exeter, N.H.; Petty Officer 2nd Class James Suh of Deerfield Beach, Fla.; and Petty Officer 2nd Class Eric Shane Patton of Boulder City, Nev.

Lt. Michael Murphy of Patchogue, N.Y., was one of two SEALs whose remains were recovered Monday from a mountainous part of Afghanistan.
