Name: CPT Thomas “Doc" Crump 

Branch of Military: U.S. Army, Aerial Delivery Officer/Rigger Detachment Commander Status: Active Duty 

Years in Service: 26 Years and counting 

Deployments: Iraq, Kuwait, Egypt, and a few special assignments Skydives: 6,000+ Freefall and 200+ Static Line jumps 

Home DZ: The World is my Dropzone, but I am very partial to The Jumping Place, SD  Deland, SD Palatka, Jump Jasper, Jump Georgia, SD Shenandoah, SD Spaceland, SD  The Hill, Zephyr Hills, and a huge shoutout to SD Louisiana. 

Fun Fact: I enjoy performing demo parachute jumps for events that strengthen and  uplift Veterans, Wounded Warriors, schools, and communities with the Special Forces  Association Parachute Team, Team Parapoke, and Team GCX. I also rig, pack, and  test jump parachutes and equipment as a Master Parachute Rigger for The National  Parachute Test Center. 

Other Fun Facts: 

Fav Plane- ANYTHING THAT GETS ME OFF THE GROUND AND IN THE AIR.  (Although, I prefer tailgate jumps) 

Fav Jump - My favorite jump was finally getting to skydive with Joey MF Cernich, and  my Son Thomas “T3” Crump. Joey and I have served over two decades each and, we  worked together in the 507th PIR (Airborne School) and 509th PIB (Geronimo). My Son  is also currently serving as a Parachute Rigger supporting Special Operations.  Airborne Every Day, Rigger For Life! 

Fav Drink: Mountain Dew (MTN DEW) and lots of it.
The man the myth 

Thank You Thomas for your service and dedication to this country! Hope to get some jumps in together anywhere one day. Until then keep up the epic work and stay safe.

Blue Skies!



Here at Pussfoot we appreciate members of the armed forces. Many members of the skydive community are either active service members or veterans and we thought it would be great to honor them here on our page. We will be bringing you a bio every week of our featured "Freedom Flyers" with hopes that you learn something new and share in our appreciation of what these people do for our country.

  • Should we assume the 26 year CPT was a prior enlisted medic? Which would just further prove “Doc is never a POG!” 🤣🤣🤣
