During the graveside service for my father, the flag honoring his military service during the end of WWII was given to my son Jason, an Airman serving in the 33rd Special Operations Squadron.
Just as the flag ceremony was over, a C-130 from the Tennessee Air National Guard flew overhead on approach to the airport. My father served in the Third Air Force, 316 Troop Carrier Group. Their primary aircraft in WWII was the C-47. Later, the C-130 was a replacement for the C-47.
It wasn’t planned, but so appropriate for the day. Jason’s father-in-law Tim is a retired Colonel; the last plane he flew was a C-130.
I am proud of the service of my father, my son’s father-in-law, and my son Jason.
