Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Don Chapman | Strike Fighter Squadron 143 (VFA-143)

5:51   |   Navy F-4 pilot Don Chapman was carrier based in the Gulf of Tonkin. His missions were all carried out over North Vietnam. Photo escort was his favorite mission because you could fly really fast. He saw a lot of tracers, but was never hit. He never got one of those MIG's he chased, either.
