Another Navy SEAL killed...Training accident in AZ.
This was posted yesterday on AZCentral's site. It happened yesterday morning. Appears to be stationed at the same place as the two SEALS killed in Lilly's thread. This is the initial news report, but there is also a 2:30 minute video segment with updates. Witnesses say it appears his chute DID deploy, but it is unknown if it was pulled while in the air, or upon impact.

A Navy SEAL died Wednesday morning during parachute training near Casa Grande.
The accident occurred at around 7 a.m. while he was undergoing free-fall parachute training, a relatively routine training program, Naval Public Affairs Officer Lt. David Luckett said.
His body was found at the Mission Royale Golf Course and the cause of the accident is still being investigated, Luckett said.
He was a Special Warfare Operator assigned to a SEAL Team based in Virginia Beach, the Navy said in a press release.
The name of the SEAL is being held pending notification of kin.
SEAL training programs encompass a wide variety of warfare preparation and take place in various locations that will simulate real war situations, Luckett said.
Mission Royale Golf Course did not have any comments on the incident.

I slow down, and then it occurs to me, I'm not afraid of small children"!
