He also has a civilian Class A CDL and is cleared to drive anything with 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 18 wheels, tracks, rotors, and/or jump jets by the US Army.
After a hair brained maneuver involving a water canal, hum-v, and a C-130 he was transferred to the Special Operations Wing.
During training with the U.S. Army on how to fly the UH-60 Blackhawk, “insert name” was demoted to 1st Lieutenant for unknown reasons other than one General Howard S. Hampton was involved.
In 2000 Chappy served 90 days in the brig, a 10,000 fine, and 3 months of half pay due to an incident involving a vice admiral’s daughter and a Saudi Sheik’s yacht while on a mission.
After the bombing of the twin towers one 2nd Lieutenant Charles Sinclair was put in the brig after hijacking a Marine Corps. LCAC from a WASP class ship (the actual ships name was not divulged in the report due to the classified mission it was on). He was reportedly screaming, “I’ll kill them towelheads!”.
After an incident involving a 1962 Rebel motorboat, the Navy declined to let him even board anything owned by the U.S. Navy or Coast Guard.
And lastly, after using a U.S. Army Hum-V to jump a crashing C-130 during a classified mission in Burma, he was recruited by Lt. Col. Alvarez. His CO was quoted as saying, “So help me god, if you don’t accept that invitation to Delta, I’ll have you court-martialed.”
