On 20 October 2013 a member of the U.S. Marine Corps family and the Mail Call Care Package Group went home to the Lord.  LCPL Christopher O. Grant sacrificed his life in service to our nation in Helmand Province, Afghanistan while conducting combat operations in support of Operation Enduring Freedom . Chis was only 20 years old living his dream and was looking forward to a bright future in the Marine Corps. He graduated from MCRD Parris Island on 19 October 2012 with 2nd Recruiting Battalion, Hotel Co. Plt 2086

This Memorial Fund is an effort to bring just a small amount of solace to the Grant family.  As a caring family, Mail Call, along with Chris' Marine Corps family and all those who are serving or have served we would like to come together to support the Grant family and show them they are not alone and never will be.  Along with Chris they will forever be part of the Marine Corps family and always in the hearts of Mail Call members.   This memorial fund will be given to Chris' mom Ms. LaShonda Grant which will aid her in establishing a scholarship fund in Chris' name

Chris choose to better himself by serving in the Marine Corps and be part of something bigger than himself.  Even though he had just started his career he had already made an impact with his brothers in the Marine Corps.  

This is a quote from Chris about success and gives a glimpse into the kind of man a Marine he had become; "There are people in my life that will not allow me to fail even if i mess up and want to quit. They push me and tell me that I have to be successful. They push me harder then my parent(s) do. (These) are the people that you need." -LCpl Christopher Grant. January 2012.
