Update: Official word of West Seattle sailor Jarod Newlove’s death

One followup on this morning’s news that West Seattle-raised U.S. Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Jarod Newlove was found dead in Afghanistan, 5 days after vanishing: The Department of Defense has now officially made the announcement. See it here. No word yet on services for PO3 Newlove, a 2003 graduate of Chief Sealth High School, nor on the circumstances of his disappearance.

    And what does the media do…camp outside her house at 6am today. It doesn’t surprise me, but never the less makes me sick. I had to talk myself out of going up there to have a few words of my own with them. It wouldn’t have helped and would only have added to the stress. Stay strong Newlove family, Jarod would want you too. Your West Seattle and Chief Sealth family are all pulling for you and will do anything we can to help…

    My heart is breaking for the Newlove family.
    God bless your family and thank you for the tremendous sacrifice your family has made for all of us. Rest in peace, our hero.

    I agree with MB. The family has asked for privacy. They shouldn’t even have to ask, let alone hang a sign on there door stating they have no comment. While I understand “The People Want To Know” how about some respect from the media. What are they expecting to hear from someone who just lost there husband, father of there children, son, friend? Let them grieve. Let them be a family. In Peace.

Sorry, comment time is over.
