Five US Servicemen Killed In Domestic Terrorist Attack In Chattanooga, Tennessee

On Thursday, July 16th, four US Marines were brutally murdered in a domestic terrorist attack outside a military recruitment center in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The shooter (who I will not dignify by naming here) was also killed. A fifth victim, a US Navy reservist, was also killed. 

This nation mourns the loss of these five good men who served in the uniform of their nation, only to die - not on some far away battlefield defending this nation - but in their own home country at the hands of a murdering coward.

Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Sullivan, 40 of Springfield, Massachusetts - RIP
Lance Cpl. Skip Wells, 21 of Marietta, Georgia - RIP
Staff Sgt. David Wyatt, 37 of Hixton, Texas - RIP
Sgt. Carson Holmquist, 27 of Grantsburg, Wisconsin - RIP
Petty Officer 2nd Class Randal Smith, 26 of Rossville, Georgia - RIP

Thank You For Your Service And God Be With Your Families In Their Time Of Sorrow.  
You Will Never Be Forgotten!

On a personal note, in addition to being a proud member of the US Marine Corps, Mr. Skip Wells was a volunteer for the Kennesaw Mountain National Military Park and a defender of the South's Confederate heritage and Civil War history.
Thank you for helping to educate the public about the South's civil war heritage and defending Southern cultural identity, sir. RIP.
