Slain soldier remembered near anniversary of death
FORT HUACHUCA — Army Capt. Christopher Seifert was in his mid-20s and the father of a son, who was born about four months before a fellow soldier killed Seifart and Air Force Maj. Gregory L. Stone on March 23, 2003, at Camp Pennsylvania in Kuwait.
Friday, a day before the 10-year anniversary of Seifert’s death, he was remembered on this southern Arizona Army post — the home of the Intelligence Center — in front of a building named after him on the fort where he received his intelligence training.
Although he never had the opportunity to cross the berm into Iraq, he was preparing to do so in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Noting the war cost Seifert’s life and that of nearly 5,000 other Americans, Col. Roger Sangvic said he was a dedicated intelligence officer.
