Navy Seals

A Concord man serving as a United States Navy SEAL died over the weekend during military parachute training.

The New Hampshire Union Leader reports 31-year-old William Marston died Saturday during a training exercise in Florida.

He served in the Navy for six years, and was part of a SEAL team on the East Coast.

Martson graduated from the Derryfield School in Manchester in 2001.

In a daring raid reminiscent of the kind used to kill Osama bin Laden, U.S. Navy SEALs swooped into Somalia Wednesday morning and rescued two aid workers, who had been held by pirates for months.

The New York Times reports the soldiers came in by helicopter and engaged in a firefight that killed nine pirates. The SEALs left with Jessica Buchanan, a 32-year-old American, and a 60-year-old Dane, Poul Thisted, who were injury free and on their way home.
