Today we have a special honoree — a US Airman and 2003 Phoebus high school graduate — Airman First Class Lee-Bernard Chavis from Hampton.
He died back in 2006 while fighting in Iraqi.
According to his former classmates – Chavis left his post to save a child when he was shot down by a sniper. Those classmates will honor him at Phoebus high school’s homecoming game on October 18th. Newschannel three honors Chavis this morning and thanks him for his service and sacrifice.
