You may be interested to know that the name of Claire Lee Chennault lives on in many ways.  One way was in the esteem and sentiment expressed by the Tigers with the naming of their children:

1.  Joan Claire Petach Randles - daughter of AVG pilot John E. Petach, Jr. and AVG
      nurse Emma Jane "Red" Foster Petach (Hanks).

2.  Eric Claire Shilling - son of AVG pilot Erik Shilling.


Any more out there?

Another "Tiger Cub" out there with the name is:

  Lee Burgard, son of 1st squadron double ace George Burgard.
