A Virginia Beach Navy SEAL was no stranger to sacrifice.

Chief Special Operator Chris Campbell was killed in the August 6 Chinook helicopter crash, where 22 Navy SEALs lost their lives.

But during his career, he constantly put himself in danger for his fellow SEAL Team members - so it seemed fitting after his death to give back to other wounded warriors.

His family, chosen to carry out his final mission, has never before given a television interview until now.

NewsChannel 3’s Laurie Simmons talked with them about Chris’ legacy and how you can take action to help his family fulfill his final wish.

It’s a story you’ll see ONLY ON 3, tonight at 5.
