Army Spc. Christopher Wright, 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment

August 19, 2018

 

Remembering the Fallen: on this day in 2010, Army Spc. Christopher Wright, 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, died in Afghanistan. He had been seriously wounded during a fire fight with the enemy in Konar Province; although treated immediately by unit medical personnel and quickly evacuated to the nearest treatment facility, he later died of his wounds.

As a youngster he had talked about serving his country, and joined up as soon as he was old enough; when home on leave he would visit his old high school and tell the students how important it was to be responsible in the world. His step-mother said he was more courageous than anyone could imagine. Spc. Wright was on his third combat deployment; he previously deployed once to Afghanistan and once to Iraq.

According to Colonel Michael Kurilla: "Spc. Wright was the epitome of a Ranger - fierce warrior, incredibly competent, and dedicated to mission accomplishment. He died in a fire fight that ultimately killed three Taliban who were reportedly responsible for the death of two other U.S. servicemen, He is a hero to our nation, the Army, and his family."

Christopher, of Tollesboro, Kentucky, was 23 years old.
