Tockr traces its origins back to World War II when Tockr founder Austin Ivey’s Grandfather, Eugene Xerxes Martin, Jr., was serving as a lieutenant in the Army Air Transport Command. Beginning his service as a P-51 Mustang flight instructor, Lt. Martin went on to fly C-47 Skytrain transport planes over the “Hump”, the infamous Eastern end of the Himalayan Mountains between China and India. He successfully flew 52 missions for which he was awarded the China War Memorial Medal.
After serving his country with distinction, Eugene would continue to fly and eventually inspire his grandson, Austin in ways he could never have imagined. The two of them would spend countless hours in Eugene’s plane, flying around Texas.
