    Deepest condolences to the Chaffey family at this difficult time. Sam was the first Trooper I ever rode with on my field trip in 1962. He was a good trainer. Jack Howard, MSPAA

    Sam and I entered the Maryland State Academy #37 on July 09,1956 with 28 other hardy souls.
    We never served together thereafter but I was aware of his long career. I missed him on
    05-17-06 when eight of our remaining classmates met at The Trooper of the Year luncheon
    in Linthicum,Md. With sympathy to his family and friends. Rest in peace brother.

    Sam & Phyllis were good friends of ours. When we were in our early 20′s we used to play cards every Friday night.
