We are in the process of listing every Fallen Hero of Chesapeake (South Norfolk and Norfolk County) and are developing a register with information on each of them.  You can find all of the information on our Gold Star Heroes page  This is a continuing work-in-progress so as new information is found, it will be added.  If you have any photos of those heroes who are not pictured, please feel free to send them to me so that they can be properly honored and remembered.
