Staff Sergeant Dee Campbell served in the Air Force for 11 years. He was killed at the young age of 30, when terrorists detonated a tanker truck filled with explosives outside the Khobar Towers housing complex in Saudi Arabia. Eighteen of his Air Force brothers were also killed in the attack.

Dee was the biggest Dallas Cowboys fan there ever was! He was a husband, son, brother, uncle, cousin, and son-in-law. Coming from a large family, he loved having big family dinners and game nights. He is missed each and every day, but his family honors his life, legacy, and service by living their lives to the fullest, just as he did.

There were three things that mattered the most to Dee: his family and friends, his faith in the Lord, and his service to his country. “I am carrying my late husband, Staff Sergeant Millard Dee Campbell, known to his family as ‘Dee’ and his to his comrades as ‘Soup,’ said his wife, Marie Campbell.
