Hundreds of spectators, veterans and active-duty military members gathered for the U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. John Chapman Medal of Honor monument dedication, Sept. 30, 2018, at Memorial Hall in Windsor Locks, Connecticut. On March 3, 2002, Chapman was killed during Operation ANACONDA, when he knowingly sacrificed his life to fend off a rocket-propelled grenade attack on an incoming MH-47 “Chinook” helicopter carrying a quick reaction force of U.S. Army Rangers and Air Force Special Tactics Airmen.
