The names of two fallen service members have been released.

Both died after getting hurt in Afghanistan.

The Navy lost Chief Petty Officer Christian Pike.

The 31-year old died Wednesday in Germany as a result of combat-related injuries sustained on March 10.

Pike was assigned to a west coast-based Naval Special Warfare Unit.

26-year-old David Proctor of Greensboro, North Carolina died Wednesday at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland.

The army specialist died as a result of a non-combat related incident that happened March 3 in Kandahar.
