Navy Cryptologic Technician Killed in Action

According to a report in the Pilotonline (h/t Lex)...

"Petty Officer 1st Class Jason Lewis, a SEAL based at Little Creek Naval Amphibious Base, and fellow first class petty officers Robert McRill and Steven Daugherty were killed when an improvised bomb detonated near their Humvee, the Navy said Saturday.
Daugherty, 28, from Barstow, Calif., served as a cryptologist. His previous duties included Naval Security Group Activity in Norfolk, and he recently transferred to a tactical communications unit with the special warfare community.

Daugherty also lived in Virginia Beach and is survived by a son."

Godspeed shipmate.
