On May 21, 2010, 2nd Lt. Jason Tyler 'Buck' Brown, received his silver pilot wings at Sheppard Air Force Base, Wichita Falls, Tex.
Jason's uncle, Lt. Col. Kip Clark had the honor of the pinning ceremony. There to witness the special occasion were members of both the Clark and Brown families. Proud parents are Lt. Col. Steve Brown and Esther Dabren Clark Slack. Grandparents in attendance were James and Phyllis Brown, and L.T. and Janice K. Clark.
Many friends and relatives made the 2,500-mile trip to hnor the new A-10 Warthog Pilot.Only 24 students were in the class, and Jason was in the top 20 percent.
2nd Lt. Brown will now complete water survival training in Florida, and more advanced training in Arizona. Both families had a wonderful time and made it there and back without a hitch. Of all the pilots receiving their wings, the Browns and Clarks had by far, the largest turn out.
Jason is a 2003 graduate of Northview High School and a 2207 graduate of Indiana State University and Vincennes University.
