Remembering Chris Campbell Today

It’s hard to believe it has been two years since the helicopter was shot down in Wardak province, Afghanistan killing 31 U.S. troops.  Of the Navy SEALS that were killed 15 were members of the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, also known as SEAL Team Six.  A long time family friend Chris Campbell was one of those killed.

Chris’ request was that if anything happened to him in combat, that his family wouldn’t focus on his loss. His wish was that people would focus on wounded troops. Chris requested that 100,000 people donate $1 to Wounded Warriors to help our wounded troops that have given so much for their country. Chris’ family and friends are dedicated to seeing his request fulfilled.

In 2012, Chris was the recipient of the Wounded Warriors’ Carry It Forward Award.  Chris’ sister and daughter accepted the award on his behalf.
