Sergeant Major Christopher Nelms

SGM Chris Nelms died of injuries sustained in a training accident last month in NC. A former WA state firefighter and 19th Group soldier, he had been on active duty for the last several years, serving with USASOC. Chris is the recipient of numerous decorations for valor and service, to include two Silver Stars and the Soldier’s Medal, and was a Best Ranger competitor.

Chris leaves behind a wife and two children.

Rest easy, Chris. See you at the ORP.
