While Seacoast United staff were in Washington DC attending the US Soccer Foundation’s Urban Symposium, they took time to pay their respects to former Seacoast United Alumnus, Nate Hardy, who played for SUSC’s first ever team. Nate served his country as a member of Navy Seal Team 6, and was killed in action on February 4, 2008 in Iraq. He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery in our Nation’s Capital.
The Club dedicated field 1 at its Outdoor Complex in Epping to Nate Hardy on Veteran's Day in 2009, and renamed its Memorial Day Tournament in Nate's honor. The Seacoast United Foundation also runs an International Scholarship program in his name.
