 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician 1st Class Chad R. Regelin, a bomb expert with EOD Mobile Unit 3 based at Naval Amphibious Base Coronado, was operating with Marine Corps Special Operations Company Bravo when an improvised explosive device detonated, killing him.

“He was doing a presence patrol in that area,” said Lt. Dave Bennett, an EOD Group 1 spokesman in San Diego.

Regelin, of Cottonwood, Calif., enlisted in 2006 and was named the USO’s “Sailor of the Year” for 2011 for his EOD work during his first combat deployment to Afghanistan from August 2010 to March 2011, according to his hometown newspaper, the Anderson Valley Post. The honor was presented to his parents, Scott and Shirene Regelin, at the USO Gala in Washington on Oct. 6, because he was again deployed to Afghanistan.
