Fallen SEAL hero awarded Silver Star for beating back 100 ISIS fighters

Chief Special Warfare Operator (SEAL) Charlie Keating lost his life in a hail of bullets on May 3, but it wasn’t the first time he’d put himself in danger to defeat ISIS militants during that deployment.

Two months earlier, his leadership, tactical skills and sheer physical courage helped American and peshmerga forces defeat more than 100 enemy fighters swarming their position, according to his Silver Star citation, obtained Thursday by Navy Times.
