Navy Chief Special Warfare Operator Mark T. Carter 27, of Fallbrook, Calif.; assigned to Tactical Development and Evaluation Squadron 2, Virginia Beach, Va.; died Dec. 11 in Balad, Iraq, as a result of enemy action while conducting combat operations in Iraq. As a SEAL, Carter earned a long list of honors, including two bronze stars with “V” for valor, a Joint Service Commendation Medal with “V” and various other awards for achievement, combat and good conduct.
He is survived by his father, Tom, and mother, Cindy, along with three brothers and four sisters. Carter’s family moved to Northern California, and efforts to contact them were unsuccessful Thursday.
In high school, he had been active in the Mormon Church and Boy Scouts.
The son of a doctor, Carter graduated from boot camp at Great Lakes, Illinois, and then Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training in Coronado, California. Carter was a stocky 5-foot-5 and outdoor athlete who loved physical challenges. Carter enjoyed rock climbing, mountaineering, diving and shooting.
His fellow SEALs gave him the nickname Badger after the small but ferocious animal. The name was bestowed after Carter beat a 6-foot-5 opponent in a wrestling match.
