Honored Military Alumni

D. Britton Wright
D. Britton Wright Class of 1963
Air Force, 9 Years
I joined the Air Force in 1964. My First 4 years I worked as a Parachute Rigger for pilots and aircraft. Retrained in 1969 as a munitions loader and was sent to Vietnam in 1970. I was a crew chief for a munitions (bombs-rockets-missiles) load crew outfitting Air Force combat aircraft for bombing missions over South and North Vietnam. These aircraft not only supported the war effort, but aided the rescue of downed pilots and U.S. Army and Marine Corps combat troops being attacked or overrun by the enemy. After my tour in Vietnam, I returned to the United States and attended Air Force Instructor School in Denver, Colorado. My final three years of service consisted of teaching new, incoming Airmen the job I did in Vietnam.
