Community honors fallen soldier from N. Texas

Posted: Updated:
A close-knit community honored a fallen soldier Thursday night.

Private First Class Christian Chandler was killed in Afghanistan on Monday. He was from a small town about 10 minutes outside of Whitewright, in Grayson County.

The loss has been difficult for his family and many in the community, and a candlelight vigil took place in Chandler’s honor at Whitewright High School, where he graduated in 2012.

Chandler joined the Army in October 2012. He deployed to Afghanistan in October.

He's survived by his mother, Rhonda, and his stepfather.
