Honoring Our Fallen Heroes from the Chattanooga Shooting

Honoring Our Fallen Heroes from the Chattanooga Shooting

We honor our fallen service members from the Chattanooga shooting in this week's Heroes in Action military videos. Our hearts go out to the friends and military families of the five fallen heroes.

We wanted to step away from our weekly military videos, ones which often include clips of members of our five armed service branches in a variety of training videos, to honor the four U.S. Marines and Navy sailor who were killed by a gunman in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Each week, we say "thank you" to our military service members for their service and sacrifice. This week is no different. Thank you for protecting our freedom and thank you for keeping America safe and secure.

Below, you will find clips (official video, news videos and personally shot videos) in memory of each of the fallen service members.
