Dedicated to supporting and honoring our nation’s warriors, the Chance Phelps Foundation raises funds for military and their families for and through recreation and outdoor events. Nineteen-year-old Pfc. Chance Phelps, of Dubois, Wyoming and Clifton, Colorado was killed in action in Al Anbar, Iraq, April 9, 2004. He was with the 3rd Battalion, 11th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, Marine Expeditionary Force from Twenty Nine Palms, California. He was posthumously awarded LCpl. This event honors our in-action and fallen soldiers, and specifically memorializes Chance Phelps, one of our homegrown hometown heroes.
