In Memoriam
Christopher Lee Hoskins
SPC., U.S. Army
Killingly resident killed while serving his country
Ramadi, Iraq, June 21, 2005

“The roots of a soldier are nurtured by the soil
of family, friends, community
Until the call of country demands
they grow straight and tall.
When you hear the rustle of leaves in the wind
You know the spirit of the fallen is alive”
-Richard P. Hoskins
This crimson maple is his living memorial.
