Navy SEAL from Falmouth was ‘incredible warrior,’ remembered for his drive, leadership | Portland Press Herald

New details emerged Sunday about the life of Falmouth native Kyle Milliken, 38, the Navy SEAL who was killed during a raid on an al-Shabab terrorist base in Somalia last week.

His courage, mettle and leadership were emphasized in interviews with his former track coach at the University of Connecticut and his former Navy SEAL instructor – and in a Facebook tribute that was posted Sunday by the Falmouth Police Department.

Milliken’s family has asked for privacy and has not spoken to the media, except to release a statement Saturday through the Naval Special Warfare Command.

“The Milliken family would like to extend their gratitude to the community for their interest in our beloved Kyle,” the statement said in part.
