Bert Striegler delivers the welcome statement.
Invocation by Rev. Fernando Nandin. The keynote speaker was Col. Richard Ayres, Commander Goodfellow AFB.
Major General Don Daniel addressed the crowd. Col. Mike Trollinger served as Master of Ceremonies.
Veterans and civilians alike listened attentively.
Rev. Brian Wiggins read the names of each pilot killed during training at Curtis Field. After each name was read, Kyle Moseley rang a bell. A very moving tribute.
Following a 21 Gun Salute by the Goodfellow Rifle Company, Greg Hector then played Taps, bringing tears to the eyes of many.
Col Dave Kennedy, 552nd MPEG, speaking.
The crowd continued to grow as the program progressed.
Looking out through the crowd and seeing the veterans who gave us so much, we are reminded why we did this.
The Magee Scout Team passed out programs and assisted with parking.
We were lucky to have the Goodfellow AFB Color Guard on hand to present colors.
The Brady Middle School Chorus did an outstanding job!
The Brady High School Brass Ensemble was quite impressive as well!
