From Naval Special Warfare Group 2 Public Affairs

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (NNS) -- Three Sailors died July 6 as a result of enemy action while conducting combat operations in the vicinity of Baghdad, Iraq.

Special Warfare Operator 1st Class Jason Dale Lewis (SEAL), 30, of Brookfield, Conn.; Cryptologic Technician 1st Class Steven Phillip Daugherty, 28, of Barstow, Calif.; and Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Robert Richard McRill, 42, of Lake Placid, Fla. were killed by an improvised explosive device while conducting combat operations in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

“Petty Officers Lewis, Daugherty and McRill were patriots in the truest sense. Our hearts and prayers go out to their families, friends, and teammates during this very difficult time. They had a combined 34 years of dedicated service to our country. Their sacrifices and commitment will live on in each of us as we continue to fight the global war on terrorism,” said Capt. Chaz Heron, commander, Naval Special Warfare Group 2. “These Sailors embodied the Navy core values of honor, courage, and commitment, time and again in training and on the battlefield. The Naval Special Warfare family will miss them and will ensure they are never forgotten.”

Lewis enlisted in the Navy on July 22, 1996, and graduated from Recruit Training Command at Great Lakes in November. In February 1997, Lewis entered Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) training in Coronado, Calif.

Following graduation from BUD/S, Lewis completed advanced SEAL training courses including parachute training at Basic Airborne School, Fort Benning, Ga., before being assigned to a West Coast-based SEAL team in October 1997.

Lewis’ awards include the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal, Navy “E’ ribbon, Good Conduct Medal (two awards), Navy and Marine Corps Overseas Service ribbon, Expert Rifleman Medal and Expert Pistol Shot Medal.

Lewis is survived by his wife and three children.

Daugherty attended Naval Intelligence Training, Pensacola, Fla., in 2000, before reporting to USS Oscar Austin (DDG 79). In 2003, he reported to Naval Technical Training Center Detachment, Fort Meade. He served at Naval Security Group Activity in Norfolk from March 2004 to February 2007 before transferring to the Navy Information Operation Command Tactical Communications System Special Warfare.

He was then assigned to Naval Expeditionary Combat Command Detachment, Combat Camera Atlantic from February 2004 to April 2007 when he arrived at Naval Special Warfare Group 2.
