On Monday, the body of a highly decorated commander of a Navy SEAL squad was discovered in his San Diego, California, residence.

According to the Military Times, Robert Ramirez III joined the Navy in 1996 and was commissioned in 2004.

SEAL Team 1’s commanding officer, Commander Robert Ramirez III, was unfortunately discovered dead in his San Diego County home on Monday.

Officials from the Naval Special Warfare Command said in a statement on Wednesday that there is no indication, as of yet, that the decorated officer’s death was the result of foul play.

According to Navy officials, the investigation by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department is still ongoing.

In a statement, Captain David Abernathy, commanding officer of Naval Special Warfare Group 1, which oversees all San Diego-based SEAL units, said, “Bobby was an outstanding leader, devoted husband and father, and a good friend to us all. This is a devastating loss to our community and all who knew him. We will remain in support of Bobby’s family, friends and teammates during this extremely difficult time.”

According to his releasable service record and command officials, he assumed command of SEAL Team 1 last month and joined the organization in June.

Five Bronze Star Medals, including two with the Combat “V” symbol signifying bravery and heroic deeds, are among the honors and decorations he has accumulated over over 27 years of service.

Ramirez has numerous more awards, including three Combat Action ribbons and medals during the battles in Afghanistan and Iraq.
