JACKSONVILLE – A new home for an injured Iraq War veteran will carry the memory of a Navy SEAL from North Carolina who was killed in action last year.
The pier named for fallen SEAL Chris Campbell is behind the Operation Finally Home house built for an injured vet.
Campbell grew up near the home, loved the water, and was a strong supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project to help injured war veterans. The project helps wounded service members recover from war injuries.
Campbell was among the 30 Americans killed when Taliban insurgents shot down a military helicopter in Afghanistan last summer as it was flying to a combat mission.
