Named in Honor of Army Captain Christopher S. Seifert
April 24, 1975 to March 22, 2003
United States Army Captain Christopher S. Seifert bravely served in Assistant Brigade S-2 of the First Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airbone Division as a military intelligence officer. In the days leading up to his Division's deployment for the Iraq War, Cpt. Seifert worked nearly around the clock in 'The Vault', preparing maps and other intelligence. On March 22, 2003, the day before his unit was to move from Kuwait to Iraq, he was killed in a grenade attack.
Christopher was an athlete, a musician and an outstanding student. However, it is his smile people remember most about him.
At the time of his death, he was attached to a forward-deployed special operations unit in Syria in support of Combined Joint Task Force, Operation Inherent Resolve.
