Robert Chambers

Chambers family memorable Arlington Memorial Day.

General David Goldfein, Air Force Chief of Staff with Bruce and Jan Chambers at Arlington gravesite of Robert and Janet Chambers, Bruce's parents.

In 1945 Veterans Air DC-3 Chief Pilot and company co-founder was Robert Chambers. His son Bruce and Bruce’s wife Jan traveled to Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day 2020 to visit his dad and mom’s grave site. To their surprise, they were greeted by a four-star Air Force General. Come read the rest of their story.

1945 Veterans Air Express families gather.

Seated under a patio umbrella from Buffy, Gaye Lyn, Jack and Bob.

Another fun, improbable gathering of Veterans Air “kids.” Buffy Noll, Bob Chambers and their spouses Jack and Diana. In Texas. On the first official stop of Gaye Lyn’s June 2019 VAE research trip.

Eason, Chambers families attend talk

Eight family members share stories 70+ years after their three dads founded and crewed the aircraft of 1945 Veterans Air Express. Their smiles tell the rest of the story.

Not in a million years in April 2015 when I began this research would I have imagined such a gathering and the opportunity to present our Fathers’ story with them in the audience. Come meet second and third generation VAE families — Chambers and Eason.
