“Kimberly’s Flight” lecture tonight
The story and life and death of the first female pilot killed by hostile fire in combat in U-S history will be told tonight at Clemson University, and the public is invited. Authors Ann Hampton and Anna Simon of “Kimberly’s Flight” will present a one-hour lecture at 7 o’clock in the Self Auditorium of the Strom Thurmond Institute. Hampton’s daughter, Capt. Kimberly Hampton, was killed January 2, 2004 when a heat-seeking missile brought down her helicopter in Fallujah, Iraq. Captain Hampton flew armed helicopters as a member of the 82nd Airborne Division.
