Special Warfare Operator (S01), Matthew J. Leathers, was (KIT) Killed In Training on February 19, 2013 during a training dive at Kaena Point, Hawaii. He joined the Navy in 1998 and began his SEAL Service in 2004. He was 33 years of age at the time of his death, was married and had three children. During his Service, he had deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan.

A Charitable Organization called "Thank You Seals", a Veterans Support group, will be presenting a beneficiary check and gifts to the Widow of S01 Leathers.
