The memorial service for Edwin M. Chapline ’48 will be on Tuesday, April 3 at Christ Church Anglican in Overland Park, KS at 3:00 PM. Since Ed was a very active member of our chapter there will be quite a few USNA alumni attending his memorial service.

Ed served on the battleship USS Missouri BB-63 and was designated a Naval Aviator in 1952 and flew in VS-38 ASW Squadron during his 10 year Navy career, which ended in 1958 as a Navy Reservist. He was a Korean War veteran.

Ed was a member of the Naval Academy Alumni Association President’s Circle since its inception in 1995 and also was a member of the Roberts Means Thompson Society for his philanthropy to the Naval Academy Foundation. He regularly attended Navy football games home and away including many Army-Navy games.
