Comments:

Carolyn "Carol" Chapin was born on December 27, 1904. She was the son of George Farnsworth Chapin and Carolyn May McConnell Chapin. She was a Red Cross personnel killed on 10 May, 1944 aboard B-25 # 42-53371 "Deathwind" en route to Ghisonaccia, Corsica when bad weather caused the pilot to fly off course and the plane crashed into the Mountains of Corsica, killing everyone aboard, including four US Army servicemembers. A team from the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) excavated the location in September 2005 and recovered additional human remains as well as more crew-related equipment. Carolyn is now buried in the Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia in a common grave with the servicemen. She also has a cenotaph located in South Cemetery, Woodbury, Litchfield County, Connecticut. Her name is commemorated on a plaque located in Bonifacio, France but her name is inscribed as Carole.
