Chasa Crockett

Teller Manager, Springdale

Dates of Military Service: 1992 – 2005

E-5 Sergeant, United States Army

Chasa Crockett served 12 years in the U.S. Army Military Police Corp to follow in my grandfather’s footsteps. She said, “my grandfather retired from the U.S. Navy in 1975.   I grew up listening to my grandfather’s stories of his service years. Seventeen years later I understood the emotions in my grandfather’s voice as he talked of wars he survived and the memoirs of his fallen brothers. I did not know just how big the shoes would be that I had to fill so I kept my head down and pushed on.”

“I served in the Bosnian War, Operation Iraqi Freedom and the Persian Gulf War. The loss of my fellow soldiers was much like my grandfather’s only in a different era. I earned my Army Service Ribbon along with the National Defense Service Medal. Weapon Medals include sharpshooter for M16 Rifle and M9MM. Marksman Medals include Mark -19 and AT4. I was a member of Military Police Special Operations Reaction Team (S.O.R.T).”
