Charlie Keating IV Killed In Action in Iraq Fighting ISIS

Fox 10 News, Fox 5 News, and KGUN9 have announced that Navy Seal Charlie Keating IV was killed in action on Tuesday during an intense and extremely heavy firefight in northern Iraq. Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook told Fox 5 that the young Keating was an advisor to Kurdish Peshmerga forces.

“Islamic State fighters shot and killed a Navy SEAL during an “extremely heavy, extremely intense” firefight with U.S. forces and Kurdish Peshmerga troops in northern Iraq Tuesday, military officials and a trainer who witnessed the fighting,” told Fox News.

Charlie was born into a family with a rich history in the sport of swimming. Charlie grew up in the Phoenix area where he swam and attended Arcadia High School. Charlie’s father, Charlie Keating III (CIII), was a member of the 1976 U.S. Olympic team where he finished fifth in the men’s 200-meter breaststroke. CIII has been inducted into both the St. Xavier Hall of Fame (2006) and Indiana University Hall of Fame.

His grandfather, Charles Keating Jr. was also a swimmer, participating at the collegiate level where he won the national title in the men’s 200-yard breaststroke in 1946. The elder Keating was a long-time supporter of the sport of swimming, donating money and helping St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati to build a competition pool: Keating Aquatic Center. Keating was a fundamental developer of the Cincinnati Marlins swim club, which produced six swimmers on the 1980 U.S. Olympic team roster, and later the Phoenix Swim Club, where his grandson (and Keating IV cousin) Gary Hall Jr. practiced.
