Date June 27 – mid-July 2005..
Quote:
A team of 4 Navy SEALs, tasked for surveillance and reconnaissance of a group of structures known to be used by Shah and his men, fell into an ambush by Shah and his group just hours after inserting into the area by fastrope from an MH-47 helicopter.. Three of the four SEALs were killed and a quick reaction force helicopter sent in for their aid was shot down with a rocket propelled grenade fired from an RPG-7, killing all 8 U.S. Navy SEALs and all 8 U.S. Army Special Operations aviators on board..


The Prophecy II - How Many Worlds Must Burn?..

Their position given away by locals supportive of the Taliban, the SEALs were engaged in a fire fight by Shah and his men.. During the fire fight, Axelson was shot in the chest and head but continued to fight alongside Luttrell until a blast from a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) separated them.. Along with injuries sustained from the blast, Axelson died of bullet wounds to the chest and head on a tree which is now known as "Axe's Tree".. When U.S. Navy personnel arrived to retrieve his body for burial, they found that it was a few hundred yards away from the RPG blast location..Axelson was reported by Luttrell to have had 3 magazines remaining when the blast took place, however, when his body was found, he had only 1 magazine remaining, which indicated that Axelson continued to fight even after the blast..After completing Sonar Technician Surface (STG) "A" School, he was selected to attend Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training and graduated with Class 237 in Coronado, California...

On December 27, 2003, Axelson married his wife, Cindy Oji, in Sacramento, California..Its metropolitan area is the 27th largest in the United States..Sacramento State or Sac State, is the largest university in the city and one of 23 campuses in the California State University System..Incorporated February 27, 1850..
