PFC Kristofer Douglas Scott Thomas
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 6, 1988
Placer County
California, USA
Death: Feb. 18, 2007, Afghanistan

Army Pfc. Thomas was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, Fort Benning, Georgia. Thomas died when the Chinook helicopter he was in crashed. Kris had wanted to join the military since he was a young boy. He enrolled in the Junior ROTC program at Lincoln High School before transferring to Roseville High School. He struggled academically and socially in Roseville before turning his grades around. Because he was so eager for a career in the military, he graduated from high school a semester early to join the Army before his 18th birthday. His dedication paid off and he became a member of the elite Army Rangers. In his senior government class at Roseville High School, Kris was an outspoken liberal but the issue of Iraq was not a political one for him. He saw joining the military as a way to help others including people with AIDS, refugees in Darfur and Iraqis plagued by civil war. Kris was a popular and outgoing guy who enjoyed computer games and sports. He also enjoyed movies and boxing. He didn't stop bettering himself once he entered the service. In letters home, he often asked for books to help him improve his skills - whether it was algebra or his vocabulary.
