Chase Moon, Dora High School Class of 2004 being redeployedChase Moon

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – The people who defend our country are brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers.

The WHNT News 19 family is putting an arm around one of our own, as he prepares to go into harm’s way.Chase Moon knows about tenacity and patience.
For nine months, Chase has commuted to WHNT from Jasper –an 80-90 mile drive one way. Chase said, “In the morning, it may be Rick and Bubba, and in the evening, it may be AC/DC.”
Sometime in the next two weeks, Chase leaves for Afghanistan as part of an Alabama Air National Guard 187th Fighter Wing deployment. It’s his second deployment.
“The first time when I deployed to Iraq, I was single,” Chase said. Chase is an aircraft armament specialist.
“I have to get the bomb on the airplane so the pilot can get there do the job that needs to be done. That way the guys on the job can come home.”
As a country, we ask a great deal of people like Moon – a husband to Jennifer and a father to Natalie. He will leave them for, at least, several months.
“I’ve been in Iraq, and I’ve been in a war, but I’ve never been in a war with a wife and a child at home,” said Chase.
Chase’s goal is to do his job well, do it a day at a time and get home to see his family again.
“I’m trained. I know what I’m supposed to do,” he said. “As long as I keep my eye on what I’m supposed to do, then everything else will fall in place.”
Winston Churchhill once said, “Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality that guarantees all the others.”
Moon is a man with plenty of courage.  We wish you the best and we look forward to seeing you home soon.
