  • Uncle George

    You are my namesake, the Uncle I never had the honor to meet. I don't think Dad and Nan ever fully recovered after losing you. Your name is mentioned at every family event to this day. The stories of your days on Guadalcanal, boxing at the Naval Academy and surviving the sinking of the USS Quincy in the battle of Savo Island. We wish so much you had been there to tell us the stories yourself. I was born 5 years after you died, but I too became a Marine Officer, served in the infantry and First Force Recon Company, as did my brother. Now we have a nephew in the 7th Marines, I think you would be very proud of that. I'll meet you someday Uncle George, until then - Semper Fidelis.

  • Final Mission of LTC George E. Chamberlin Jr.

    Posted on 8/15/16 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On Tuesday, May 5, 1964, a de Havilland Canada CV-2B Caribou (#61-2593) from the 61st Aviation Company, U.S. Army Support Command Vietnam, Military Assistance Command, Vietnam (MACV), crashed in a rice paddy shortly after takeoff from Tan Hiep Air Base, Dinh Tuong Province, South Vietnam. The aircraft suffered a failure of the #1 engine, suspected to be from hostile small arms fire which was compounded when the crew turned into the feathered engine in an attempt to return to Tan Hiep airstrip, where they had just picked up several passengers. The aircraft’s left wing stalled, rolled inverted, and crashed before a recovery could be completed. The lost crew included pilot CAPT William C. Osborn, co-pilot WO1 George R. Graham, crew chief SP4 Carmine A. Cervellino, and flight engineer SP5 Donald L. Nelson. The lost passengers included LTC George E. Chamberlin Jr., SP4 Clair D. Doty, PFC Carl W. Grimes, MAJ Courtney P. Hollar Jr., SP4 William J. Montgomery, SP5 Frank Thornton Jr., and 5 ARVN passengers. [Taken from armyaircrews.com and virtualwall.org]
