About Colonel Tommy C. Stiner
“(JAU) Colonel Tommy C. Stiner Airfield” is named in honor of the man who proved himself to be a patriot, a soldier, a statesman, and an aviator who never lost his love of flying.”
Tom Stiner was raised in Campbell County and, after retiring from the military, called our area home once again.
He graduated from East Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Science in Business and received a Regular Army Commission as a Distinguished Military Graduate through the ETSU ROTC program. Tom later completed his Master of Science in Public Administration from the University of Tennessee.
After entering the Army as an infantry officer, Tom was soon selected for flight training at Fort Rucker, AL, where he was dual rated in both fixed wing and rotary wing aircrafts. He then served two tours of duty in Vietnam, flying Huey and Cobra gunships.
Tom flew an unprecedented number of combat missions, survived being shot down on 5 separate occasions, and became one of the Army’s most highly decorated pilots.
In 1992, he retired from the Army as a Master Aviator at the rank of Colonel and returned home to Campbell County where he ran for public office.
Tom was elected as County Executive for three terms. His record of accomplishment in the role was outstanding, and during his tenure the community flourished. Several major infrastructure developments came to under Tom’s leadership.
After retiring from public service in 2002, Tom continued to remain an active part of our community. He rejoined the aviation community and between 2001 and 2017, he flew three different airplanes in and out of Jacksboro. He flew over 4,000 hours covering more than 8,000 miles thoroughly enjoying each and every flight.
It is a privilege to be able to honor a man who was an integral part of our community.
