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 nation.  The Pub Crawl each year raises money to the Shane Patton Scholarship Foundation, which awards a scholarship each year to a Boulder City High School student.
