Two brothers, two years apart who share a first name and haircut also share their choice of career. Christopher Kyl and Christopher Cody Chartier, who use their middle names, will serve in the U.S. Army.

Local Brothers Christopher Cody Chartier, left, and Christopher Kyl Chartier share more than their first name. The siblings are both embarking on careers with the U.S. Army.Pfc. Kyl Chartier has already been in for 18 months. Cody Chartier is a senior at Sedona Red Rock High School and will leave for basic training two weeks after his graduation Wednesday, May 22. Kyl Chartier graduated from SRRHS in 2010.

“When I went to Kyl’s graduation from basic at Fort Sill, [Okla.], I decided to look into the Army more and found out there were a lot of things I can do through the Army. I’m already signed up and leave for basic training also at Fort Sill,” Cody Chartier said. “I’m kind of, more or less, following in my brother’s footsteps,” Chartier will serve as a health care specialist or combat medic. Kyl Chartier is in communications systems.
