Doc Chihuahua's Silver Star Travel Fund


UPDATE: WE MET OUR DONATION GOAL IN ONE DAY!!!

PLEASE CONTINUE TO SHARE THIS CAUSE WITH OTHERS-
ANY AMOUNT ABOVE THE GOAL GOES DIRECTLY TO THE TRAVEL NEEDS OF THE FAMILY OF DOC CHIHUAHUA AND HIS FORMER BROTHERS IN ARMS




For those who are unaware, Specialist "Doc" Shannon Chihuahua gave his life for his brothers in arms while serving as a medic with the 101st Airborne Division in Kunar Province, Afghanistan on November 12, 2010. Doc sacrificed himself so that others might live.

His heroism is being recognized at a Silver Star Ceremony at Fort Campbell, KY on February 7, 2014.

Many of Doc's family and former Army buddies are scattered throughout the United States and desire to attend, but need help with travel costs. Please help support a travel fund to get family and friends to Doc's Ceremony.

You may have already seen or given to the t-shirt drive ( https://www.booster.com/shannonchihuahua?share=1581387907602183). As an alternative you may give directly here on gofundme.com.


Any donation is greatly appreciated.



Memorial Plaque: 1-327 IN BN, 1 BDE, 101st ABN DIV

Shannon was an amazing and kind hearted young man that gave the ultimate price trying to save others. Heaven is a better place with him.

I am truly amazed by everyone's giving hearts. We are overjoyed to know that because others care so much we will be able to have all our family and my husbands brother soldiers with us when he receives this great honor. Thank you to everyone from the bottom of my heart. You have answered my prayers.

Due to your incredible generosity, we have achieved our donation goal in one day!! I am truly in awe of the generosity and good-will of those who have supported this cause. I served with Doc and witnessed his sacrifice. He was truly a hero. Thanks again for your donations. Please continue to share- any amount above our goal will go to support the travel needs of Veterans to this ceremony.

God Bless this Soldier that paid the highest price for our Freedom. He traded his life for Freedom! Without his Awesome Bravery and Courage on the Battlefield, we wouldn't have this FREEDOM WE ENJOY! Words cannot express enough appreciation for his sacrifice!

What your donation does for those who survive "Doc" Shannon Chihuahua is enormous. Most of those who served directly with Doc are prime candidates for PTSD. THE most effective treatment for those who have PTSD is to meet and talk with those who served in their own unit. While honoring Doc, they will be healing themselves. Give what you can, this gathering is VERY, VERY important.
