Pilot's war story told in book

Robin Brown was featured in the G-T's Community & Northwest section
Corvallis Gazette-Times, July 4, 2007 by Theresa Hogue, Gazette-Times Reporter


Author interviewed Robin Brown of Corvallis, who flew helicopters in Iraq

Robin Brown has finally started adjusting to civilian life. She and her husband, Jason, are working on renovating their third older home, they have a 10-month-old son, Henry, and she works in sales at Benson’s Interiors.

It’s a far cry from piloting a Kiowa Warrior scout attack helicopter for the 82nd Airborne.

Brown was a military brat who attended Fordham University in New York on an Army ROTC scholarship, and went straight into the Army after graduating in 1997. Her whole life has revolved in some way around the military, and having married a military man as well, the idea of life without the Army is a little bit odd.

Recently, Brown relived some of her most dramatic military moments when she read Kirsten Holmstedt’s new book, “Band of Sisters: American Women at War in Iraq.” Brown is one of the two dozen women soldiers interviewed in the book, which has just been released.
