I am a Veteran.Michael Stephen Chenault
April 17, 1940 - April 2, 2017

Michael Stephen Chenault, LTC (retired), age 76, of Harrison, AR passed away on Sunday, April 2, 2017 in Little Rock, Arkansas.

He was born on April 17, 1940 and raised in Bradley County in the home of Mr. Gold DeArmond. He attended Warren High School. He was preceded in death by his mother Mildred DeArmond Chenault O’Neal and her spouse Martin O’Neal and his father Mikael Chenault.

He married Judy Carol Wilson of Monticello in 1961 and joined the Army soon thereafter. He served in the U.S. Army for 24 years. His service included duty overseas in Vietnam where he flew attack helicopters in 1966-67 and commanded with the 101st Air Mobile Division in 1970-71. Amongst his many assignments, he served as a member of a team tasked with rewriting the Army Infantry Tactics at Fort Leavenworth, a troop command at Fort Campbell with the 101st Airborne Division and service with USAREUR in Heidelberg Germany.

After retirement, he finished his Master’s Degree in History at Arkansas State University and moved to Harrison Arkansas with Judy. There they enjoyed their retirement doing exactly what he wanted to do when the mood struck him, whether raising cattle or building picture frames. In his later years, he took joy in feeding large herds of wild deer and birds and shooting the squirrels that robbed the bird feeder.

LTC. Chenault is survived by his wife of 55 years Judy Carol Chenault; 3 sons and 1 daughter, Michael Zane and his spouse Peggy Chenault, Davis Clark Chenault, Stephen Kent Chenault and his spouse Dr. Kathryn Chenault, Nicole Leigh McMurry and her spouse Anthony “Tony” McMurry, and 11 grandchildren: Margaret Clarice Chenault, Michael O’Neal Chenault, Sophia Chenault, Amelia Chenault, Henry Chenault, Wyatt Chenault, Rachel Chenault, Hayden “Pete” Chenault, Wilson Chenault, Dakota McMurry and Aiden McMurry.
