Hash Shaalan passed away, sadly, in Spring of 2006.
He was a talented, humble man driven by hard work and filled with intergrity.
He was a pretty good golfer too, although I'm sure he'd disagree.
If anyone would like to make a contribution in Hash's honor the family has asked to make them to: "The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals"
as he certainly loved animals.

Mr. Shaalan enlisted the United States Navy in 1981 to become a member of the SEAL Teams. He graduated BUD/s in class 119 with many notable accomplishments, one of which was setting the 5.5 mile swim record. His first assignment after graduation was service to Underwater Demolition Team 12 as a member of second platoon. He went on to serve SEAL Delivery Vehicle Team One as a plank owner where he completed a 7 month deployment to Asia. While on deployment, his platoon responded to real-world events and conducted cross-training exercises.
Upon his return from Asia, Mr. Shaalan was selected to serve the Navyís elite counter-terrorism team, SEAL Team Six. While his actions at Team Six are highly classified, his operational tempo and training increased substantially. His team deployed worldwide in response to numerous acts of terrorism. While at Team Six, he served as a department head, assault team member and instructor. His areas of expertise include Close Quarter Battle, Dive Supervisor, Jump Master, Range Safety Officer, Explosive Breacher, Middle-East Analyst and Arabic Linguist. He was awarded a Presidential Citation and the Navy/Marine Corps Medal for Heroism before he completed his tour as an instructor in their training department.
Mr. Shaalan embarked on a career as a military advisor in 1988 and has since worked in numerous countries around the globe with a focus on counterterrorism and anti-terrorism. He provided protective security services to numerous dignitaries, Fortune 500 companies and private businesses throughout Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, South America, and the US.
While he continued to provide military instruction and security services to the international community, Mr. Shaalan maintained membership with the United States Parachuting Association, Frogmen Unlimited, and the Fraternal Order of UDT/Sealís.
