SOC (SEAL) Kevin A. Houston, 35, of West Hyannisport, Mass., died in a CH-47 Chinook helicopter crash on Aug. 6, 2011, which killed 29 other United States service members. Houston enlisted in the Navy in 1995 after graduating from Barnstable High School in 1994, and reported to an East Coast-based SEAL team in 2008. He lived in Virginia with his wife and three children. Houston was also survived by his mother, Jan Brown, and his brother, Craig.

β€œHe was doing what he always wanted to do, defending the country as a SEAL. He achieved his dream.”
