Heartbreaking last text messages Marine shared with girlfriend moments before Chattanooga attack

The girlfriend of one of the four Marines slain in the attack on military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee, revealed the last heartbreaking text messages the two shared before his life was cut tragically short.

Caroline Dove, girlfriend of Marine Lance Cpl. Skip Wells, told CNN that Wells was texting her, saying how excited he was to see her, when suddenly he texted “ACTIVE SHOOTER” and then nothing else.

“You are so weird,” she replied, unaware of the terror spree being unleashed by Islamic terrorist Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez.

Dove texted again simply that “I love you.”

But she received no reply. Hours went by, then she texted him again with “Hon, I need you to answer please.”

She didn’t find out until the following day that Wells was among the victims, she told CNN.

“I just want everybody to know that he really wanted to fight for his country,” she said. “He wanted to be remembered fighting for his country.”

That’s one wish that most definitely will come true.
