SPC Horton's Act of Heroism

My name is Jane Horton and I am the wife of SPC Christopher Horton, and Army sniper killed in action on September 9, 2011. Christopher put his career on hold as a professional sponsored shooter, business owner, and political consultant to serve his country, and unfortunately he didn't come home. Chris could have done anything he wanted to do, but he chose one of the most dangerous jobs in the military, and one of the most wanted targets, and was killed because he was hunted for carrying a sniper rife. Christopher loved his country more than anything, and truly believed in the values that America was founded on. He didn't want to do anything else until he served his country. He felt an honor and duty to protect us on the home front, and join the ranks of the many American patriots that fight for our freedom. Freedom isn't free, and it was bought with Christopher's blood.

My Hero

Chris answered the call to serve his country and was willing to lay down his life. He was truly a fearless patriot, and a valiant warrior. Chris was well known for loving his country and for his incredible shooting skills. He was offered jobs by many government agencies, and told them they could call him back when he was home from Afghanistan, but unfortunately he never came home. As an American Army sniper, he knew that he would be in serious danger, but it honestly never phased him nor did it distract him from his call to duty, and it ultimately cost him his life.
