CPO Kevin A. Houston
Birth: Sep. 20, 1975
Death: Aug. 6, 2011
Wardak
Wardak, Afghanistan

Special Warfare Operator Chief Petty Officer (SEAL) Kevin A. Houston, 35, of West Hyannisport, Mass. Houston was a 16 year Navy vet who became a SEAL in 1999. He received a Purple Heart, two Bronze Stars and participated in more than 100 capture and missions. Kevin's mother says he was born to be a SEAL. "If he could do it all over again and have a choice to have it happen the way it did, or instead work at McDonald's and live to be 104? No. He'd do it all over again," Christopher Kelly, whose daughter was a friend of Kevin's, became the young man's mentor and father figure. Kelly, a Vietnam veteran, says Houston would always make time to visit Cape Cod when he had leave even though he made his home in Chesapeake, Va., with his wife and three children. He was a football captain at Barnstable High School and joined the Navy not long after he graduated in 1994. He became a SEAL in 1999. His boyhood friend, Joe told the newspaper that Kevin told him the day they met in elementary school that he was going to be a Navy SEAL.
