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.
