I recently corresponded with the father of Corporal Chris Mason who was killed in Iraq November 28, 2006.His father Garland,sent me this video of his son.I will be posting the myspace page setup in Chris`s memory.I know this board is full of brothers in arms.If you have a moment,stop by and leave a message for his family.I did not personally know him but I know his kind and he was a good man that gave his all for what we are doing in Iraq...
This is Chris`s video

I know this board is home to many Rangers,SF,Scouts,Infantrymen,Soldiers,Marines,Sailors,Airmen,Coast Guardsmen and Veterans.I would appreciate it if you would stop by there and leave a message for his father.Chris was a hunter just like many of us,a soldier like many of us and he made the unltimate sacrifice as many of our friends have,,Take a moment and pay respects to him bros..

As Veterans day nears I received this correspondence from Chris`s father Garland.A picture is worth a thousand words.:wink:

"This is a photo that was taken in Montgomery Alabama while we were visiting the capital. In the Capital is a wall with the names and pictures of Alabama's fallen warriors from the war on Terrorism. Please share this photo so others can see and feel the pain of losing a loved one in this battle against the darkness that threatens our great nation.

Please RePost this photo over the Veteran’s day weekend, but make sure you take the code so the photo moves with the bulletin."


Chris Mason' mom places her hand upon a picture of him being displayed at the Alabama state capital – Montgomery, Alabama – Oct 6 2007.

May God be with him and his family...     I got to go wipe away my tears.....sad. 

I don't know him....but he's a fellow service member to me. 

If one has not been a "SOLDIER" you don't really get that "titillating feeling" of a lost brother of arms.   Take care "brother"
