Remembering you today Trooper Chappell. I did not know you and was only an explorer for the SCHP at the time of your death but I attended your service with Troopers from Charleston. My first of unfortunately many over the past 25 years. Thoughts and prayers to the Chappell family, friends and coworkers.
