On July 16, 2015, an unthinkable act of violence and terror hit my hometown, taking the lives of four Marines and one Navy sailor. As our community came together to support the victims and their loved ones, we showed the world Chattanooga’s strong heart.
Gone too soon:
- Sergeant Carson A. Holmquist, Marine, age 25
- Logistics Specialist Second Class Randall Smith, Navy, age 26
- Gunnery Sergeant Thomas J. Sullivan, Marine, age 40
- Lance Corporal Squire K. “Skip” Wells, Marine, age 21
- Staff Sergeant David A. Wyatt, Marine, age 37
- Sergeant DeMonte Cheeley, Marine recruiter
- Police Sergeant Dennis Pedigo, Jr., Chattanooga Police Department
