Bow Your Heads – William Stone

William "Stoney" Stone passed away yesterday. As I get more details, will shoot to you.

Stoney was a "plank owner" for the career field after serving as a ground FAC in Nam. First time I met him was at the 23rd TASS at Bergstrom AFB when I first joined the Air Force. Went our separate ways for a while but was again stationed together at Fort Hood until he retired.
