Remembering An American HeroPosted on 2/21/14 - by Curt Carter firstname.lastname@example.orgDear PFC Christopher Lee Chambers, sirMORE
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
Thank you,ChrisPosted on 10/26/07 - by DonSaunders, Former Captain, USMC email@example.comChris Chambers and Jerry Weimer were killed that same night in August, 1968. It broke my heart that such fine men would perish under such unusual circumstances in ther lives. May God Bless Chris always.MORE
A Homeboy in NamPosted on 9/20/05 - by John A. Howe (L/Cpl., Company B, 3rd MP's) firstname.lastname@example.orgIt's been a long time since we started out across that dried up old rice paddy. I remember you were on my left. Jesse Clay and Dan Toliver were on my right. It seemed like all hell broke loose. A grenade concussion threw Jesse backward. Although I did not know it until we came back for our wounded, the first burst of fire took you. I remember the day you reported in to the 3rd and we found out that I had grown up in Woodburn and you in Moalla. I wish I had had the time to get to know you better. I remember you as an easy going guy who wanted to do his share for his country. I have been looking for your family several years now, to let them know you were not alone the day you died and that some one from home was with you.MORE
