Chuck DeBellevue were 2 of only 5 aircrew in the Vietnam War to have attained the title of "Ace", having scored 5 kills in that conflict in air to air combat. Ritchie retired from the reserves in 1999 as a Brig. General. DeBellevue remained on active duty until 1998, retiring as a Colonel and the last actively serving "Ace".
