This Memorial Day weekend I have been trying to write posts to honor the three cousins that I know gave their life for their country. If I have missed anyone, it was not intentional.
Today I honor another cousin who I never got to know but of who I am so proud of! SSG Chauncy Ryan Mays was assigned to the 63rd Explosive Ordnance Disposal Battalion, 20th Support Command, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md. He was KIA in Afghanistan on Feb. 28, 2011 while en route to defuse an IED when the vehicle he was in hit another IED.
As I said, I never got to know Chauncy. I would have liked to have! To get a little insight about him, I will share two great dedications for this truly amazing soldier. The first is an article that I found written online here.
The second dedication is a video I found on YouTube.
Thank you for your dedication and your sacrifice!
