Shane Patton was a Navy SEAL who was killed on June 28, 2005 during a rescue mission in Afghanistan. 4 SEALs were on a surveilance mission named Operation Redwing when they were discovered and surrounded by Taliban forces. Shane, along with 7 other SEALs and 8 Army Nightstalkers were aboard a MH-47 helicopter that was shot down by a RPG killing all aboard. Only 1 of the 4 SEALs involved in Operation Redwing survived.

The Shane Patton Scholarship Foundation was formed in 2007-and awarded over 40 college scholarships to Boulder City High School students. Every year they hold a fund raiser- this year will be a pub crawl in Boulder City. Entry is $35 which includes a T-shirt (see attached) and drink deals at the 6 participating bars.
 
All money raised at the event goes toward college scholarships for graduating Boulder City High School students.

Each year we also complete a workout in his honor.  This Friday April 14th the WOD will be “Shane”, and it can also be completed on Satruday during open gym.  This year we will have the option of completing the workout in teams of 2.

Shane Eric Patton graduated in 2000 from Boulder City Highschool, Nevada, where he was an avid baseball player. He then followed in the footsteps of his father, retired Navy SEAL James Patton, and graduated with BUD/S class 239.  Shane Patton was one of 16 troops killed when a MH- 47 Chinook helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan on June 28, on a daring daylight mission to reinforce a four-man SEAL reconnaissance squad in 8,000-foot mountainous terrain.  Patton, seven other SEALs, and eight Army commandos died in their heroic attempt to rescue their fellow SEALs.  LT Michael Murphy, Matthew Axelson, and Danny Dietz fought on courageously and were killed in the firefight against overwhelming Taliban forces.  A total of 11 SEALs died that day in the War against Terror, in the biggest single loss of life for Naval Special Warfare forces since World War II.  Shane Patton is remembered with the greatest respect and gratitude by his fellow SEALs, the Navy, and our community.
