  • Tonight I Met The Great, Great, Grandson of Adna Chaffee, Sr.

    The Man I picked up at the airport tonight was Tom Chaffee.

    His Great Grandfather was Major General Adna Chaffee, Jr., The Man whose name was placed on the M-24 Chaffee Light Tank.

    His Father apparently served in the 10 Mountain Rangers in Vietnam but refuses to talk about it, because apparently something mysterious happened to him over there.

    His father just happened to get a job in The State Department after leaving the service.

    His Brother, Lieutenant Colonel Mark Chaffee is in Iraq right now & is a member of the 10th Mountain Rangers & has 15 Confirmed Kills.

    I found it interesting what he told me & just thought I would share it with you guys.
