Chris Moon Memorial

We are raising money to erect a permanent life-sized bronze statue of Chris Moon, a Tucson High School graduate who died serving our country in Afghanistan. Chris was an outstanding baseball player who was drafted out of high school by the Atlanta Braves, but he instead decided to accept a scholarship to play baseball at the University of Arizona. He worked out with the team and played during the fall season, but decided to serve his country by enlisting in the US Army at the end of the first semester. He served several tours of duty and was credited with several Taliban kills until he was mortally injured by an IED. Chris was flown to the US Army Medical Center at Landstuhl, Germany but succumbed to his injuries on July 13, 2010Chris's story is the high school athlete equivalent of the Pat Tillman story, and we feel we need to honor him in this way. The statue will be located at Tuscon High School's baseball/softball complex known as "Cherry Field" and his statue will overlook the field he once played on as a Tucson High School baseball player. Please consider donating any amount to our fund. No contribution is too small! Thank you!
