He was awarded a Soldiers Medal for saving lives of fellow soldiers after a helicopter they were in crashed and began to burn. Although injured himself, he removed fellow soldiers from the helicopter including a general, he even had to tear away part of the helicopter.

I tried to get his autograph a couple years ago around the same time I got them from Powell and Baker, but I couldn't find any good contact info for him. I was collecting ttm's from lots of random people at that time, so I gave up on him.........then he died :Cry:

Now I know better ways to find contact info for retired military people and my Desert Storm collection keeps growing. I've sent out about 40-50 cards the past couple of weeks, and got 7 more this morning from General Horner and Admiral Abbot. I'll probably be getting more next week too.

I sent a Mikhail Gorbachev Desert Storm card to the Gorbachev Foundation Of North America back in 2012 or 2013, long before I ever started my Desert Storm PC. I received a package of notepads, a pin, flyers and other things along with a letter from his executive assistant thanking me for writing and she said that he was living in Moscow and gave me the address to his foundation over there. I never received my card back and later learned from some of my Russian friends that he had moved to Germany or something like that so I kind of gave up on him. Hopefully he's signing now and I can get his someday.

Thanks for the heads up!

One of my favorite parts about my Desert Storm collection, is that many of the guys have wrote me notes/short letters too! It makes the collection even more meaningful.

Hi Cliff,
Happy to sign your cards and appreciate your interest in us old guys. I do get a few requests for my autograph-and always try to accommodate. I loved flying when I was on active duty but never felt the need to fly once I retired. I enjoy golf, hunting, fishing and wood working. My favorite a/c was the A4 Skyhawk (Scooter). That was a fun airplane to fly-

Adm.Ronald "Zap" Zlatoper served in the United States Navy from 1963-1996. During that time he served in both the war in Vietnam and in Desert Storm. Early in his career he flew many attack missions over North Vietnam in the A-6 Intruder aircraft.

During Desert Storm, Adm.Zlatoper was in command of the USS Ranger (CV-61) battle group that included 8 ships. His ships launched the first cruise missile and aircrafts attacks against Iraq. It was also his ships job to attack the Iraqi Navy during the war.

Adm.Zlatoper flew 150 missions during the Vietnam War and flew 1 mission in Desert Storm. He flew more that 4,000 flight hours during his career and was winner of the 1971 East Coast A-6 Bombing Derby. He was one of only a few pilots to have flown combat missions from air craft carriers in both Vietnam and Desert Storm.

He amassed 1,031 carrier landings including 300 at night and never had a wave off because of bad technique! Early in his carrier he had said that the A-6 Intruder was the ugliest plane that he had ever seen, but it ended up being the plane that he flew the most and was exceptionally successful with.

Dear Cliff,
Here are your autographed cards. Thank you for your note. My favorite airplanes to fly were the A-6 “Intruder” for attack work and the F-14 “Tomcat” for air to air combat. (I flew both)

Gen.Bryan D. Brown served in the United States Army from 1966-2007. He spent his career in the special forces and served all over the world.

He served multiple tours in Vietnam, first in infantry and then as a special forces UH-1 helicopter pilot where it was his job to insert and extract American special forces teams into and out of enemy territory.

In 1979 he was one of the planners of the backup mission during the Iranian Hostage Crisis to rescue hostages that were being held at the American embassy in Iran after the first rescue mission had failed. The hostage situation was resolved before Brown's backup mission could be put into action. If the mission would have gone through as planned, Gen.Brown’s helicopter would have been the first one into Tehran, as the Air Force aircrafts that were originally supposed to lead the army in had too many problems, so the army then planned to go in by themselves.

He later served in the invasion of Grenada, conducted missions during the Iran-Iraq war and others. In 1988 he was part of the team that recovered an abandoned Soviet made helicopter in Chad, Africa. During the mission, 75 troops and 2 Chinook helicopters were put inside of a C-5 Galaxy airplane and flown into Chad. The two Chinooks flew to the location of the Soviet helicopter that had been previously used and abandoned by Libya. The Soviet helicopter was connected to one of the Chinooks and flown back to base. Then all 3 of the helicopters were loaded into the C-5 Galaxy and flown back to the United States. That mission was called Operation Mount Hope III.

Brown’s units were likely the first combat pilots to start wearing night vision goggles which were originally meant to be used by soldiers on the ground. They cut the goggles and attached them to their flight helmets. They did that while practicing for the backup mission during the Iranian Hostage Crisis, the Invasion of Grenada was the first time they were used by pilots in an actual mission, and Operation Prime Chance was the first time they were used in battle when an Army helicopter engaged an Iranian boat that was laying mines.

Gen.Brown helped lead a special forces battalion during Desert Storm. He helped to get them in and out and to resupply the ones that were there on the ground in Iraq.

He was the leader of all American special forces from 2003-2007 during the last four years of his military career.

Being retired Army I love seeing this thread. I did not make it to Desert Storm and retired a few months later in June but this is definitely a great challenge to complete.

At first I thought I might get lucky and get a couple autographs from guys like James Baker and Charles Horner, but my collection keeps growing really fast. I even got a bunch of cool autographs from two guys today that I'll post later tonight or tomorrow morning. Yesterday I got a deck of "Iraqi Freedom" cards which include 3 generals in uniform that have previously signed Desert Storm cards for me before. I like getting autographs from all kinds of people, but I've been just focusing on military autographs most of the time now. It's really cool to read about their amazing careers and have their autographs, and about half of them have written me notes/letters!

He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and legion of merit. He also flew the A-10 Thunderbolt/Warthog during some point of his career, but his exploits in the F-15 make him one of the best, if not the best American combat pilot in the post-Vietnam era.

Dear Cliff, Thank you for the nice letter- and the honor to sign your cards. I am not a military man, but I am always so impressed by those in the military who are there to take care of our country. My grandfather’s helicopters have ensured our safety countless times. He was proud of their effectiveness in war, but I would say more proud of its life saving capabilities in time of need.

Best Regards,

I see where you tried to get Schwarzkopf with no success. I know how you feel. Being from New Jersey we have the New Jersey Military academy in Sea Girt NJ and the grounds was also used for the NJ State Police training. The main building is named in honor of his father who was commander of the State Police many years ago(remember Norman grew up in NJ). We were hoping Norman would return for a visit after Desert Storm but I never saw him unless he made a quick visit and I missed him. I had his book IT DOESN'T TAKE HERO which was his autobiography which I was hoping he would sign but atlas I never got to meet him. If you are interested in books like that it is a good read.
Again keep up the good work

He participated in the Vietnam War, as well as Desert Storm, commanding the 24th Marine expeditionary unit during Operation Provide Comfort. He later became the 32nd commandant of the Marine Corps, the supreme allied commander of Europe and after leaving the Marines, he worked as the 22nd National Security Advisor.

Gen.Jones was awarded a silver star for his actions while serving in Vietnam. One day near Khe Sanh his unit was heavily outnumbered. Gen.Jones stands six feet, four inches tall which made him a big target for the enemy, but he showed fearless bravery that day, calling in artillery strikes very close to his unit’s position. When the fighting had stopped, around 230 enemy soldiers were found dead and his heroic actions likely saved the lives of him and his men.

But it was probably because I had a blue sharpie, and he thought the sig wouldn't show up (and you cant write over your face, right?). I guess next time I'll have a silver one...

The cards have pictures of different political/military leaders, pictures of the sites that were attacked by the terrorists, pictures of military equipment like planes, helicopters, ships and there are also a lot of sticker cards that have a patriotic message on each of them.

I've sent one of the cards to an SCF member that's a veteran of the Afghan war, and I'll send the other Bin Laden card either to a different veteran, or to George Tenet/Robert Mueller who were the leaders of the CIA and FBI in 2001.

Thanks! I was really surprised that he signed them too. I sent them out and hoped for the best but I didn't think I'd ever see them again until they showed up in my mailbox one day.

I also never thought that I'd have anywhere near the success I've had with getting all of these military related autographs. It's been a lot of fun. I'm thinking about maybe trying to get them made into a book someday. The autographs and letters are great by themselves, but I'm always really amazed when I read about the careers of each of them and I feel very honored to have their autographs in my collection.

I have a lot of autographed cards that I would like to display in a matted frames, so I'm trying to get an idea of what sized frames and mats I'll need, and hopefully names of different websites where I might be able to find help to do what I want. I used a picture editing program on my computer to copy/paste some of my autographs onto matted frames to try to explain my ideas.
In each of frames I want to use 8x10 pictures and the autographed cards are 3.5x 2.5 or 2.5"x3.5" I haven't looked up the dimensions of the Desert Storm novelty dollar yet.

That would be just awesome! I am sure Hobby Lobby or your local craft store can do some custom matting and cuts, I think those sort of places have the capacity to do that kind of work.

CW4.Mike Durant served in the United States Army from 1979-2001

As a helicopter pilot, he took part in missions such as Operation Prime Chance, the Invasion of Panama, Desert Storm and Operation Gothic Serpent.

In Desert Storm, he was the pilot of the first helicopter to engage a scud missile launcher. He is probably most well known though for being the pilot of black hawk helicopter call sign Super-64 that was shot down over Mogadishu, Somalia in 1993 while trying to help capture warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid. After the crash, he was dragged from the crash site and held prisoner for 11 days. That incident was later made into the movie, "Black Hawk Down".

During TV interviews, some of the people that took part in that mission have said that the real-life mission was even a lot more violent than the movie.

He was awarded the distiunguished flying cross for his actions in Desert Storm and Somalia, was awarded a purple heart, prisoner of war medal, bronze star and possibly some others.

During his career he flew more than 3,700 flight hours, including more than 1,400 flight hours wearing night vision goggles.

I have some exciting things planned for this coming week. I've finally ordered some frame mats for framing some 8x10's along with some of my autographed cards, and I've also ordered some Enduring Freedom propaganda leaflets. I'll probably frame some, and send a few out to try to get signed.

What time period were you in the military? I would be honored to add your autograph to my collection too!

I joined the Army in December of 1969 and retired in June of 1992. I then went into the retired reserves in case they needed to recall me for anything and stayed there until my 60 birthday in 2011. I thought I would only get credit for the original 22.5 years but they credited me for 42 years of service. The most shocking thing of it all is I never went into a conflict. I took my training in 1970 at the famed Tigerland in Fort Polk then on to Fort Sam to be trained as a combat medic and never left the states. Then transferred to the Army Reserves and became an instructor and taught developmental and tactical classes and traveled around the northeast for that. To this day I do not know why I never hit Nam and I have to admit Desert Storm was over before some of us ever left the States. Some of my students got there before me. I guess the man upstairs had other plans for me. Even though I am termed a veteran and I collect a pension I sometimes feel that I do not belong in the same class as those who were on the front lines.

You are really doing a good job with this collection and I hope you keep it up as at least for me its an honor to see what you are doing for those vets you have procured.

I've been planning since last year to find a frame mat that could hold an 8x10 picture and an autographed card. I live in Alaska, so many of the places that made them either didn't want to ship to...

Lt.Gen.Harold Blot served in the United States Marine Corps from 1962-1966.
During his career he accumulated 5,000 flight hours, and flew in 60 combat missions during the Vietnam War.

While working as a test pilot he tested more than 25 types of tactical airplanes. He also flew an NF-104A rocket assisted plane to higher than 100,000 feet. Only 3 NF-104A planes were made, and one of them was crashed by the legendary pilot Chuck Yeager. I asked Lt.Gen.Blot which plane was his favorite to fly and he told me that it was the F-8 Crusader.

Man, you have some real awesome returns. I never had the honor of serving in the military, but have tremendous respect for everyone who has. Your project sheds some light on a very interesting era of military history as well!

God Bless,

Kevin

Val Kilmer played the role of fighter pilot Lt.Tom "Iceman" Kazansky in the movie "Top Gun". Unfortunately, some people think that Mr.Kilmer's autographs are "ghost signed". Hopefully that isn't true, but it's hard to know with TTM's.

This one looks good, I have gotten Val ttm before, and his signature here matches up with the IP examples I have seen! Cool idea to include him, I bet he doesnt see many of these cards to sign, so a cool addition for sure! Great that he chose gold pen too!
