The chapter is named in honor of Bob and Helen Seidel. Bob began serving his country during World War II. At the age of 17, Bob joined the Army Air Forces and trained to become a B-24 Flight Engineer/Turret Gunner. After training, Bob was deployed to the European Theater. He flew his first combat mission in July 1944, and continued to fly combat missions over Germany in hopes he would reach the magical 35th mission; unfortunately, on 16 November 1944, on his 32nd mission, Bob and his crew were shot down. Bob was captured and was incarcerated in a prison camp until liberated by the Russians on 19 April 1945.
Bob participated continuously in the Dallas Chapter 232 until his death on 23 May 2007. He served in many leadership roles for the Chapter and AFA Texas. Bob's wife, Helen, was "THE BEDROCK" of the chapter serving in Chapter and AFA Texas leadership roles until her death on 15 June 2015.
