Knowing Bob from 1973 thru 1990 it was a pleasure to observe that he took his place in the line of fine Officers. Knowing he was mentored by Col Christmas and Col Fox he must have been proud to Command the Bacis School. Semper-Fi

Col Chase was my CO at OCS from Jan 2006 - Mar 2006 for OCC 191. He was an articulate, well-educated, no-nonsense kind of CO. I would have liked to have served under him in the Fleet. Hopefully after his retirement, the Corps gave him some kind of GS position b/c this man is definitely a patriot with a ton of experience and knowledge.
