Andy Brown telling his story

The Fairchild Incident – Andy Brown

Cover of book "Warnings Unheeded"

When Andy Brown was a 25 year old Airforce Security Policeman at Fairchild AFB in Washington he single-handedly stopped an active killer who had already killed or injured over 25 people. Andy shared his story with an LFI class back in 2009 and gave us permission to share his story with our listeners. This is a very moving story and conjures up some very disturbing images, yet is a story worth telling and hearing from a young man who was truly a hero that day.

Since this recording Andy has published an excellent book about the incident, entitled “Warnings Unheeded: Twin Tragedies at Fairchild Air Force Base Where he ties together two tragedies that occurred in 1994, the hospital shooting and the crash of a B-52 Stratofortress.
