Named in honor of Sgt. Nathan Chapman, a South Hill resident, the
Chapman Memorial Trail connects South Hill Community Park with the
Heritage Recreation Center.
Chapman's motto was 'Stand Up and Do Something.' He was remembered by
his friends as dynamic, outgoing and charismatic. He told his wife he
joined the Green Berets to fight against injustice and to help free
oppressed people. The Special Forces motto is 'Liberating the
Oppressed.' Nate Chapman served 12.5 years in the Army.
