Chouteau was the radio operator on B-24 #42-40248, assigned to the 10th Air Force, 7th Bombardment Group, 436th Bombardment Squadron.
They were part of a group of planes on a bombing mission to Toungoo. On the second bombing run, a three plane formation got out of position and when they dropped their bombs, one struck the wing of Chouteau's plane. The bomb did not explode, but the plane burst into flames, dropped off to the left for about one thousand feet and then exploded. All aboard were killed.
Chouteau was from Tulsa County, OK. He received the Air Medal and the Purple Heart.
Because his body was not recovered, he is memorialized on the Tablets of the Missing.
