Spec Darrell Wayne Shipp
Birth: Oct. 30, 1981
Bexar County
Texas, USA
Death: Jan. 25, 2007, Iraq

Spc. Darrell Shipp of Harlingen Texas attended Harlingen High School graduating in 2000. After graduation, he moved back to San Antonio and was a used-car salesman and manager of the meat department at an Albertson's grocery. Before he joined the Army in 2005, he was a waiter at an Olive Garden restaurant off U.S. 281. He played bass guitar in a punk band at Sam's Burger Joint and the White Rabbit. He had high octane in his blood and was the proud parent of one baby and that was his car. He loved to drag raced at the San Antonio Speedway and on public roads, most recently in his beloved 2000 black Ford Mustang. Apparently he had plans to continue racing. A high-performance clutch that he'd ordered off the Internet from Iraq had arrived in the mail earlier this week and was in a box on the living room floor of his parents' home. Scheduled for leave in a couple of months, he wanted to supercharge the engine. When heavy rain turned the Iraqi ground to mud, he relished pounding through the rough terrain in a Bradley Fighting Vehicle, and when it was broken down, a Humvee. His experiences and interests were on display around the family home, including a racing trophy and a clock beside the computer in the living room that had a little sign next to it: "Iraq Time." His parents frequently corresponded with him by Internet and Webcam. He was 25.
