  • Dad's bracelet

    Posted on 5/29/17 - by Dena (Chesnutt) DeGraff Denadegraff@gmail.com
    Today is Memorial Day, and Dad has been on my mind more than usual this weekend. I wish you could have known him in person. He loved God, my family and his country with all of his heart. He was a true hero.
    Over the years, I have heard from 2 wonderful ladies who tracked me down and sent Dad's bracelet to me. I wear one now, but my children will have them someday. Thank you all for your sweet words and prayers over the years. God bless you!

  • Final Mission of CAPT Chambless M. Chesnutt

    Posted on 5/5/17 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On September 30, 1965, a USAF F-4C Phantom II (#64-0660) from the 47th Tactical Fighter Squadron, 15th Tactical Fighter Wing (on temporary duty from the 8th Tactical Fighter Wing), stationed at Ubon Royal Thai Air Force Base, was on a strike mission against the Ninh Binh Bridge in North Vietnam when it was shot down and crashed with the loss of both crew members. There are conflicting accounts of the cause of the downing of the aircraft, one source stating it was anti-aircraft fire, and another attributing the loss to an SA-2 surface-to-air missile. The lost crewmen included CAPT Chambless M. Chesnutt and 1LT Michael D. Chwan. The two airmen were not recovered and they were listed as Missing in Action. In March 1985, their remains were repatriated and they were positively identified the following month. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org, 8tfw.org, and ejection-history.org.uk]

  • POW/MIA Bracelet

    I saw something today that reminded me of when I was a young girl about 12 years old and I had his bracelet and will always remember his name because it was so unique. Hopefully his family had gained some closure since then.
