Chris Short

Here is a picture of our hero, our son, Corporal Chris Short.

Chris is currently serving with the 1st Battalion, 4 Regiment, United States Marine Corp. in Iraq. Chris was deployed in early January of this year.

Chris is married to his high school sweetheart, Alicia, and they have a 9 1/2 month old son. Chris Jr. Alicia and little Chris are living in their home in the Jacksonville, NC area awaiting Chris' return. Chris is with the 2nd Radio Batt., and we have watched TV anxiously hoping to get a glimpse of him. My husband, Arnie, along with Chris' two brothers, Ryan and Matt, have sent several dozen care boxes to Chris - we wanted to make sure he had plenty for himself, along with plenty to share with those in his regiment. All of us, along with Chris' grandmothers, aunts, uncles, cousins and hundreds of family friends, pray for his safe return, and the safe return of all of these brave military personnel as they fight for the freedoms and beliefs of this country.

Chris, we love you so very much, and you're in our thoughts and prayers constantly. Be safe, be proud, we miss you......We'll see you soon! YOU are our Hero.
