Jerome volunteered to be a hero.

I was the lead aircraft commander for the 187th Assault Helicopter Company that day. Our unit came under heavy enemy fire and many aircraft were lost. We flew well into the night and next morning logging some 13.5 hours. The last flight occurred under very dark conditions and we needed the services of a flare ship to light the landing zone. Jerome volunteered for this duty. The flare ship was shot down and plummeted to the earth in flames. All of the crew was lost. His sacrifice was both monumental and tragic. I consider him to be a real hero and his loss is huge.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Jerome Dee Chandler, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
