RADM Larry Chambers, USN: First African American to Command an Aircraft Carrier

RADM Larry Chambers, USN: First African American to Command an Aircraft Carrier

$35.00
The first African-American aircraft carrier commander, Rear Admiral Lawrence Cleveland Chambers (1920– ) played a prominent role as captain of the USS Midway during the Vietnam War. During the evacuation of Saigon—known as Operation Frequent Wind—he famously ordered several UH-1 helicopters pushed overboard to make room for an escaping South Vietnamese Air Force major to land his Cessna. Chambers, who had only commanded Midway for a few weeks, gave the order believing (wrongly, it turned out) that he would be court-martialed for the $10 million loss. This biography covers his early life and military career, including his role in the desegregation of the U.S. Navy during a period racial strife. More info →
