 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Retired U.S. Air Force and Fighter Pilot now Deceased.
I feel deeply honored to have served my country as a member of the Fourth
Allied Prisoner of War Wing. The caliber of leadership and organization I
encountered, upon completion of my solo tour, filled me with pride and
exhilaration. The morale and determination of the men never faltered.

In the face of adversity, it became solidified and stronger.

I am proud to be an American Military Man
