Major Clifford J. Chapman graduated from West Virginia University in May 2000 with a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering. He concurrently obtained a minor in aerospace studies through ROTC and a commission in the U.S. Air Force. Major Chapman earned a master's degree in electrical engineering from the University of Idaho in December 2012 while serving in the USAF. After commissioning in May 2000, then-Lieutenant Chapman completed Euro-NATO joint jet pilot training, where he earned a military pilot rating and eventually became a senior pilot and aircraft commander of the B-1B Lancer. He completed three combat deployments and one overseas tour to Qatar, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guam in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and the International Security Assistance Force-NATO. Major Chapman has been stationed at Ellsworth AFB with the B-1B, and at Sheppard AFB as an instructor pilot in the T-37 and T-6. He co-owns a patent for a water-leak detection system with his father, James Chapman.
