At churches and homes in and around Armada on Sunday, the talk centered on a U.S. Navy SEAL from Macomb County who was killed last week in combat with heavily armed militants in Afghanistan.

Chief Petty Officer Jason Freiwald, 30, of Armada, and Senior Chief Petty Officer John Marcum, 34, of Flushing in Genesee County, were fatally shot Thursday night, the Defense Department said Sunday.



Freiwald, a 1996 graduate of Armada High School, the married father of one daughter, has one brother who also is a Navy SEAL, another training to become one and a third who is in college.

"Their whole family makes everyone in this area quite proud," said Nancy Moegle, a physical education teacher at Armada High School.

Commander Gregory Geisen of the Naval Special Warfare Command Public Affairs said Freiwald's family asked for privacy and did not wish to speak to the media Sunday.

Neighbors and people who know Freiwald's family described him as a well liked young man who came from a strong and active family. Priests at various churches on Sunday asked parishioners to pray for him and his family.

Freiwald is one of four brothers all of whom have strong athletic

backgrounds, especially in wrestling. Their father, Richard, is the former president of the Armada Athletic Boosters.

"They are a very close family, no doubt, just real good people," said Ken Keding, a longtime area resident, who visited the Freiwald family to pay their respects along with his wife, who made them meat loaf and potatoes.

Freiwald and Marcum, who died two days after the seventh anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, were forward deployed to Afghanistan from their assignments at the Naval Special Warfare Development Group in Virginia Beach, Va.

"They died while taking the fight to the enemy, going in harm's way with the selflessness that resonated in their character and made them giants among men," said Capt. Scott Moore, commanding officer of the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, in a statement.

Freiwald, who was born in Utica, enlisted in the U.S. Navy on April 25, 1996, and reported to Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Ill., on Nov. 5, 1996.

He graduated from the Navy after completing basic training and went through the Marine Corps Intelligence Training Center in Virginia before reporting to basic underwater demolition/SEAL training in Coronado, Calif.

According to the Defense Department, Freiwald's initial duties were with SEAL teams in California where he completed qualifications to prepare him for combat including sniper training, Arabic, and tactical rock climbing. He also distinguished himself during numerous combat deployments in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Freiwald was a highly decorated SEAL combat veteran who was honored with awards including the Bronze Star with combat "V" distinguishing service; Joint Service Commendation Medal with combat "V"; two Navy and Marine Corps Commendation medals; and others.

In addition to his brothers, he is survived by his wife, Stacey; daughter, Jasmine; and parents, Terri and Richard Freiwald.
