COMBAT VETERAN

Our Membership includes a true, LIVING LEGEND in U. S. Military history.  LTC (Ret.) Robert E.

S. military), authorized to wear the Triple C.I.B. for combat service in three separate wars.

ROBERT E. CHISOLM, "COL. BOB": LTC (RETIRED)

He is credited with a combat parachute jump on D-Day, into Normandy, France, as part of Operation: "Overlord." He made a second combat parachute jump into Holland during Operation: "Market Garden," and also saw combat in the Ardennes Forrest (southern Belgium), duting the "Battle of the Bulge."

 

After WW II, Robert E. Chisolm also saw combat in Korea and Vietnam.

 

For his exceptional military service, the Parks & Recreation Department of the City of El Paso, Texas, honored Bob with the dedication of a park, appropriately renamed:

 

LTC ROBERT "BOB" CHISOLM PARK.

 

The park is located on Harrison Avenue, only blocks away from the chapter facility,  in front of Clendennin Elementary School.
