Navy SEAL Matt Mills, who was married in April and spent his childhood in Tulsa and attended Arlington schools, died Saturday during a rescue mission in Afghanistan. He was 35.|
Mr. Mills was based in Virginia Beach, Va., and had been a Navy SEAL for 14 years.
He was a member of the SEAL unit that killed Osama bin Laden more than three months ago, but none who died Saturday took part in the bin Laden mission.
Mr. Mills had just gone to Afghanistan after returning from his honeymoon with his wife, Keri, a little more than a month ago, his cousin Tina Mills Cunningham of Arlington said.
