Petty Officer 1st Class Kevin R. Ebbert
The Department of Defense has announced the death of a sailor who was supporting Operation Enduring Freedom.

Petty Officer 1st Class Kevin R. Ebbert, 32, of Arcata, Calif., died Nov. 24 while supporting stability operations in Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan.  Ebbert was assigned to an East Coast-based Naval Special Warfare unit in Virginia Beach, Va.

Kevin Ebbert’s mother, Charlie Jordan, sent this message:

“Kevin Ebbert, my 32 year old son, US Navy SEAL serving his second deployment in Afghanistan was killed Friday. Kevin was poised to return home early next year and start medical school completing his training started as a Corpsman to become an MD. We last spoke about he and his wife Ursula joining Rotary where he could work in clinics internationally.

“There are many details to be worked out. There will be a Memorial Service scheduled in Arcata. In the meantime we have set up the ‘Kevin Ebbert Memorial Fund’ with Humboldt Area Foundation for those of you who wish to donate to it in Kevin’s name.”

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of our teammate who has made the ultimate sacrifice,” said Capt. Robert Smith, Commander, Naval Special Warfare Group Two.  “We have lost a courageous patriot who selflessly answered our nation’s call to defend freedom and protect us from terrorism.”

A memorial service will be held on Nov. 29 at 10 a.m. at the JEB Little Creek Base Chapel. A reception will follow at the SEAL Heritage Center onboard JEB Little Creek.
