The National Navy Seal Museum in Fort Pierce held a ceremony Monday morning to add three new names to its memorial wall, which honors fallen Navy SEALs and Frogmen.

The names added to wall included special warfare operators Seth Lewis, Brett Marihugh along with U.S. Navy Seal Charles Keating IV. 

Keating IV died fighting ISIS in Iraq earlier this month.

Family members of the honored service members were in attendance for the ceremony.

"It means a lot to the families when they come here to visit and they stay at our Trident House.  It's a direct tie to the museum, them and us.  We share the stories of what their sons and fathers have done and what they have given.  It's a bond that we have," said National Navy SEAL Museum Executive Director Rick Kaiser.

Navy SEAL Edward Byers Jr., who received the Medal of Honor in February, was also honored at Monday's ceremony.  

Byers is the first living, active duty member of the Navy to receive the Medal of Honor in four decades.
