The father of a very good friend passed away last September. He enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1940. Upon graduation from Officer Candidate School in 1942, he was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Air Corps and served in various assignments including the Pentagon and Allied Forces Central Europe Headquarters in Fontainebleau, France. He retired from the U.S. Air Force in 1965, as a Lieutenant Colonel.
His funeral was held at Arlington Cemetery in June. I was honored to be asked to photograph the service. It was a beautiful day and a wonderful service.
