Howdy I am the son of CW4 Stipnieks National Guard brat/child of Vietnam vet I am currently drafting out my fathers biography realize I am old as I write about three closed airports my father flew out of.
I remember as a Guard Brat the Daleville Inn, Wings the summer the Book Chickenhawk Came out of. I remember my father explaining what was going when TH-55s were practicing hover Autos that summer of 1984.
It took a professional boxer out of Latvia to get me to embrace more graciously some truly interesting Army Aviation history I had at the time no desire to be any part of. Army Aviation plays a key role in easily one of the more weirdest threads of Cold War history.....
In my thanks it is because a Cobra Crew needs remembering November 1984 (Till Ft Sam Houston turned things down) I could occasionally here the notes that also drift over one of their final resting place. I also saw the image of a man who well probably made it possible for my existence. (I was born in 1975 my father's tour was 67-68)
Thanks for the answers...the Cobra Crash....November 1984 Salado the captain their still is the memory of friendly face a warm man who loved the son of his unit mate.
