Marvin Champion shared a link.Yesterday at 8:42 AMSadly, I pass on the obituary for SMSgt. William Denver “Sonny” Brown, Jr., USAF (Ret.) A proud Vietnam Veteran, he served his country for 30 years in the United States Air Force, retiring with the rank of Senior Master Sergeant, then went on to retire from Civil Service. I worked with Sonny from 1989-1994, when he was an Equipment Specialist on the H-53 at WR-ALC during the full press MH-53J conversion. Many of our Equipment Specialists were former crew chiefs and/or flight engineers, so I pass this on for anyone who might have known him in either Active Duty or Civil Service status.
