Claire Chennault (Reverse)

Grave of Claire Lee Chennault (reverse).

The Internet is quick to note that Chennault's grave is the only one in Arlington inscribed with Chinese characters, and a more concerted effort shows that the first three characters (陳纳德) are his adopted Chinese name, "Chen Na-De" (a phonetic approximation of "Chennault"), but I am uncertain as to the meaning of the remaining four characters.
