McConnell served in the Air Force for 20 years, including two long tours of duty as a jet fighter pilot in Europe, where he helped train NATO forces. However, he was assigned as a forward air controller in Vietnam and was in charge of FAC spotter planes from Da Nang to the border with North Vietnam. He flew 200 combat missions and a total of 691 hours as a forward air controller, for which he was also awarded the Air Medal with seven Oak Leaf clusters.
He was the son of the late Ellis M. Bun McConnell and Thelma Davis McConnell and was born June 8, 1932, in the Cornish community near the center of what is now Fort Chaffee. His great-grandfather, Robert Houston McConnell, settled in the area in the 1850s, fought for the Confederacy in the Civil War and later served in the Arkansas House of Representatives and state senate.

McConnell was a graduate of Greenwood High School, where he played football and was all-district in basketball (as were both of his sons). He attended Arkansas Tech for one semester where he went out for basketball, but then enlisted in the Air Force. At that time, the Air Force required a college degree to enter pilot’s training, so McConnell served as a jet mechanic for three years until the Air Force changed its rules. McConnell passed the required tests and won his wings.
After retiring from the Air Force, he and his wife built a home on the site of a home once owned by his parents and before that his grandparents, Reuben Jefferson Davis and Rhoda Davis.
