*In 2008, a SEAL was killed in a parachute jump identified by Maxine Park, The Arizona Republic.
The Navy has identified the SEAL who died Wednesday during a parachute-training exercise.
Special Warfare Operator Senior Chief Thomas J. Valentine, 37, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, died from injuries suffered during parachute-training operations in Casa Grande AZ, Navy officials said.
“We want to make sure that we find out what exactly happened so that we can prevent this from happening again,” said Naval Public Affairs Officer Lt. David Luckett. Luckett said the type of training exercise is relatively routine.
The accident occurred early Wednesday morning while Valentine was undergoing free-fall parachute training. Valentine’s body was found at the Mission Royale Golf Course. The cause of the accident was still under investigation. Valentine enlisted in the U.S. Navy in August 1989 and served most of his time with East Coast-based SEAL teams.
Valentine did multiple tours in Afghanistan and Iraq and received numerous military awards and decorations including three Bronze Stars with “V” for Valor. Valentine, who was from Minnesota, is survived by his wife, two children, parents, brother and sister.
