Spc Christopher Horton, Sniper R.I.P.

This week a portion of US 169 was dedicated as the “Specialist Christopher D. Horton Memorial Highway.” Spc Horton was a member of the Oklahoma
National Guard’s 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team and was killed with two other soldiers when enemy forces attacked their position in Afghanistan last September 9th.

Check out the Facebook page dedicated to him.

Thanks for the post.

The 45th "Thunderbirds" have a good reputation with a good reason.

They were in Iraq when I first got here in 2008.

There is a nice article in The Blaze today about Chris and the work his wife, Jane, is doing to bring to the people of this fine country the recognition that our men and women who lose their lives in war deserve. She has given away, at her expense, over 1300 KIA bracelets (each cost $8).

She gave the bracelets to Chris’ friends and family but also has been giving them to random people she meets and even notable figures. In fact, her story is gaining so much traction that she has met with former President George W. Bush. State senators are also wearing the bracelets and Horton recalled the brief moment she met Barry Switzer, former Oklahoma and Dallas Cowboy’s football coach. Horton said she met Switzer at a homecoming event for other soldiers. She said she spoke briefly with Switzer before the event and gave him a bracelet.

When he spoke before the crowd, Horton remembers him saying “I’m never going to forget the fallen soldiers.” He then went on to talk about Chris and say that he would never take off his KIA bracelet that Horton had just given him. Horton said Switzer wasn‘t aware of her husband’s story before this meeting and that he had quickly researched Chris and retooled his speech to include him.
