Tristate reacts to war


Christopher J. Miller, 22, of Batavia, is a graduate of Batavia High School and the son of Sandy and Dan Miller.

His parents write:

The Few, The Proud, Honor, Duty, Country, Semper Fi.

As parents of a Marine you become aware of and begin to believe in these and many other traits that are drilled into Marines at Parris Island and during their tour of duty. Our Son, Corporal Christopher J. Miller, is with the USMC 1st FAST Security Team deployed from Yorktown, Virginia. Chris and his Team are currently at an undisclosed port providing security for the refueling and unloading of missiles to nuclear submarines.

The Enquirer wants to share the stories of the hundreds of Tristate men and women serving in the U.S. armed forces and their families. If you are willing to share your story, contact reporter Howard Wilkinson, e-mail:; telephone: (513) 768-8388; mail: Howard Wilkinson, 312 Elm St., Cincinnati, OH 45202
Chris, now 22, graduated from Batavia High in 1999. Chris excelled academically and was an All-Southern Buckeye Conference performer in baseball and football. Undecided about his future, other than a love for baseball, Chris enlisted in the Marine Corps on December 26, 1999.

He was scheduled for discharge this fall. Of course, that is on hold for another year as all military personnel, to a man/woman, are vital in our quest to maintain freedom.

We as Americans and parents are very lucky and privileged to have Chris and his Military Brethren standing up for our freedom. Keep up the good work, son. Love Mom & Dad
