Petty Officer 2nd Class Chris Davila
From Sierra Vista, Arizona

On the sixth anniversary of the terrorist attack on the United States, Petty Officer 2nd Class Chris Davila raised an American flag over Camp Korean Village, Iraq, he brought with him from Arizona.

Tuesday, May 6, 2008, Sierra Vista firefighter and emergency medical technician Chris Davila presented that flag to Fire Chief Randy Redmond as fellow firefighters looked on. Monday, May 5, 2008, was Davila’s first day back on the job with the department after being gone for nearly nine months, with seven of those months deployed as a Navy Reserve corpsman serving with a Marine unit near the Jordanian and Syrian border area in Iraq.

And, as luck would have it, on his first shift saw him responding to a blaze in Sierra Vista. “Right back to work,” he said with a laugh.

  1. I wasn’t going to do this — in light of winning the other two books. I really really hope someone else comments to make this fair! But…I just had a thought to what I could do with this journal IF I did win. We have a young wife that attends our church, and her husband is in Iraq. He was wounded this spring, and got to come home for a bit, but he’s back over there now. I could give it to her. So…. if this entry “fair” please enter my name:)
