US Navy SEAL commander dies in Afghanistan

AAP December 24, 2012 8:51AM

A SAILOR identified by US media as the commanding officer of US Navy SEAL Team 4 has died in Afghanistan, military officials say.

The Pentagon said Commander Job Price, 42, did not die in combat, and that his death was under investigation.

Price, of Pottstown, Pennsylvania, died on Saturday of a "non-combat related injury while supporting stability operations in (central) Uruzgan province, Afghanistan," a Defence Department statement said.

It said Price was assigned to a Naval Special Warfare unit in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

NBC News reported that Price commanded SEAL Team 4, one of eight SEAL team deployments.

I am very sorry, but I do wish he had considered the impact of this on all those under his command.

This is Demoralizing with a capital D. If you don’t want to live for your own sake, live for others.

Like the ‘former Secret Service agent who committed suicide in his car’ kind of suicide?

Should not have been reported.

Some things should remain classified. I wasn't after any one here for reporting it, I just think some things need not be said.

This man was in charge of training Afgan police, presumably for the purpose of taking over after we leave.

So what kinds of pressures was the Obama administration putting on him?

Well, yes, I have no info otherwise.

If it isn’t true, I am sorry, but how can I know?

If he was murdered I certainly hope it comes to light.

I just don’t believe this story.Here we have a Navy Seal who would more than likely fight to the death with any enemy of the United States and we’re too believe he committed suicide.

Somethings fishy here.

IMHO, simple suicide does not pass the smell test...particularly the way this info is coming out. I believe there’s probably a whole lot more to this than what has been said.

Matt? Any thoughts?

Officers and senior enlisted in the US military live in a zero defects environment. There is no place where the pressure ever lets up. Whether home, training, war or wherever, their decisions and behavior are always either officially (and unofficially) brought under scrutiny.

My point is that you don’t get to be a commander (0-5) without having dealt with an awful lot of pressure. Why suddenly now does this guy take his own life?

I’d wait for an investigation before categorizing this one.

The Guardian (UK) News is calling it an “apparent suicide.” I don’t believe that!

Will we also find out that he was being treated for “depression” and on SSRI anti-depressants which just happen to have suicide as a side effect? Takin bets on it.
