Christopher Wayne Cagle

Fallen Hero’s Hometown and State: Shreveport, LA

Branch of Service: United States Marine Corps

Rank: Lance Cpl.

Becoming a Marine just like his granddad was always a dream for Lance Corporal Christopher Cagle. He and his twin brother, Will, enlisted while still in high school and left for Parris Island immediately after graduation. He was stationed in Washington D.C. as a Ceremonial Marcher, and in 29 Palms California as a small boat coxswain where he loved the adventure.

After his honorable discharge, Chris followed his other passion of working on the railroad. He had a huge heart and cared deeply for others. An avid outdoorsman, he loved hunting and fishing and spending time with family and friends. Chris was a storyteller and could always take the most boring event and spin it into a first-class adventure.
