Congressman Chuck Fleischmann issued the following statement in remembrance of the five service members who lost their lives in the July 16, 2015, terror attack in Chattanooga:
“Today is a somber day in the Chattanooga community as we honor the lives of five fallen heroes. Three years ago, the lives of Gunnery Sgt.
Thomas J. Sullivan, Staff Sgt. David A. Wyatt, Sgt. Carson A. Holmquist, and Lance Cpl. Squire K. "Skip" Wells, and Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Randall J. Smith were taken, leaving a void in our community and in the homes and hearts of their families and friends. As we honor the memory of the Fallen Five, let us pray for those who are hurting, and come together to be Chattanooga Strong.”
