COUNCIL CHAIR TODD M. TURNER AND
COUNTY EXECUTIVE ANGELA ALSOBROOKS OFFER CONDOLENCES UPON THE LOSS OF MARINE
STAFF SGT. CHRISTOPHER SLUTMAN, LIFELONG MEMBER OF THE KENTLAND VOLUNTEER FIRE
Prince George’s County
mourns the loss of Marine Staff Sergeant Christopher A. Slutman, who also
served as a first responder, and a lifetime member of the Kentland Volunteer
Fire Department in Landover.
On behalf of the
residents of Prince George’s County, we extend our deepest condolences to the
family and loved ones of Staff Sgt. Slutman, who was mortally wounded by a
roadside bomb in Afghanistan on Monday. Staff
Sgt. Slutman gave his life to keep us safe, and while service was his calling, the
loss is immense. We stand in support of
his family and loved ones, especially at this most difficult time of grief.
We also offer our
sympathies to the firefighters and United States Marines with whom he served,
as they mourn his loss.
Staff Sgt. Slutman, a son of Prince George’s County, was a hero,
very deeply committed to a life of service at home and abroad. He graduated from Frederick Douglass High School,
began his volunteer service with the Upper Marlboro Volunteer Fire Department,
and later joined the Kentland Volunteer Fire Department in Landover.
Staff Sergeant Christopher A. Slutman gave the ultimate sacrifice.
Prince George’s County is forever proud,
and we honor his service and valor with our humble gratitude.
