…Zip's Navy career was 100% Naval Aviation – from flying A-1 Skyraiders, “Spads”, in Vietnam to the A-7 Corsair II.   Shore duty assignments included two tours on the editorial staff of Naval Aviation News and Head of the Naval Aviation History Office. He was the writer for the popular "Grampaw Pettibone" safety feature in Naval Aviation News for 20 years.   Zip wrote his own books and editorial assists, and was the guiding hand behind the flagship publication of the Association of Naval Aviation, Wings of Gold, for over 30 years.  Most of all he was a true friend and a great Gentleman to so many of us.

*Although he did not serve aboard USS Intrepid, we thought his outstanding Naval career warranted a special mention on our website.   Read the Full Obituary here.
