Memorial Day: Honoring John Chapman and All Who Served

Memorial Day Weekend is a time to reflect on and pay tribute to the courageous men and women who have served and sacrificed for our freedoms. Today, we honor their bravery and thank them for their service.

One of the many heroes to remember is John Chapman, a fallen Combat Controller in the Air Force Special Forces. He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroic actions during the Battle of Takur Ghar, where he sacrificed his life to save other service members during a rescue mission. His story of valor is immortalized in the book Alone at Dawn, and will soon reach even more hearts through a planned movie adaptation by renowned director Sam Hargrave, known for his work on Extraction​.

John Chapman’s bravery represents the courage and dedication of all those who have served. Out of the 41 million who have served in the U.S. military, the Medal of Honor has been presented to only 3,517 service members.

As we enjoy this Memorial Day Weekend, let us take a moment to remember and honor those who have given their all for our country.
