Warning Star (the Constellation or "Connie") and AWACS, and served all over the world in places like Germany, Iceland, and even Vietnam. His adventures led him to meet astronaut Charlie Duke (who walked on the moon) and even Elvis in Paris! The Air Force even brought Dad to Waco to meet my mom, which of course is why I'm here writing this today. Dad retired as a Lieutenant Colonel and enjoys retirement benefits that make me jealous, and I know through all the ups and downs that he's loved his career. During all of my recent photo scanning I found a few great photos of Dad (most of them taken while away to send home to Mom or Grandma) in his Air Force gear, looking like the hero he is, and I really treasure these images. It takes so many people to do the work of our country, and I'm immensely proud to be the son of an Air Force officer, my incredible dad!
