ONSLOW COUNTY -

An event next Saturday will honor a Jacksonville Navy SEAL who was killed in action last August.

Chris Campbell was among 22 SEALs who died a year ago this month when insurgents in Afghanistan shot down a Chinook helicopter carrying 30 people.

Family members of Campbell have organized the Frogman 3D Bowhunters' Challenge, to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project and the Navy SEAL Foundation.

The event is scheduled for August 18 in Jacksonville.
