Join us as we celebrate the life of an American Hero - Sgt. Dillon C. Baldridge. Dillon, son of Tina Palmer and Christopher Baldridge, along with Sgt. Eric M. Houck and Sgt. William M. Bays were killed in action by small arms fire on June 10, 2017 in Peka Valley, Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan while serving in Operation Freedom’s Sentinel. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack by placing an ‘infiltrator’ into the Afghan Army.
