Shelby Messer still wears a U.S. Army “Army of One” t-shirt. She wears it for her son Charlie Messer, a soldier wounded in war, who was killed in a car crash Dec. 22, 2007.
Charlie volunteered, joined the army, and went to war in Iraq. He was wounded June 15, 2007.
Shelby needs closure. The truth will give it to her. But the truth of what happened that day isn’t currently available.
Charlie’s family believes he was injured in combat that day and should get the Purple Heart.
