I did not know Mr Chambers, but I recently found out that he was a shipmate of my great grandfather's on the USS Mannert L Abele 1944-1945. My Grampy, Maurice "Rocky" Lefebvre, passed in 1984. I just want to say thank you for your service, and as a Charleston area native I wish we would have been able to meet in person. RIP, say hi to my Grampy for me! To the family of Mr Chambers I am sorry for your loss, he is a true American hero.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the children and family of Gordon Chambers. We have had the pleasure of knowing Gordon over the last several years. Talked with him several hours while visiting in his home. Loved him telling me about his experiences in World War 2. He was like a father to me. He was a good Christian man and a wonderful husband to my sister Angie. You will be missed. Rest in peace brother. Wilma and I love you.
