LTJG Chase

Chasing a dream

What did you want to be when you were a kid? For children, dreams and ideas for their adult profession can stretch beyond imagination. As those children continue to grow, sometimes those dreams and ideas change and they end up following other life paths. From as young as 3-years-old, Lt. j.g. Matthew Chase knew exactly what he wanted to be when he grew up. Cliché as it sounds, one could say it was his destiny. Chase wanted to be a pilot, but not just any pilot. He wanted to be a Coast Guard C-130 Hercules airplane pilot.
