My father passed away in mid December. He had 3 tours in SE Asia, flying the F-4C, D, and E. He was a River Rat with 200 missions North, and won the Silver Star on 10 May '72 leading a flight of F-4Es that took out the Yen Vien rail and switching yard. Some of you will no doubt be very familiar with the date and target. But those are stories for another time.
A few days ago my mother handed me a box of his old uniform insignia, including his wings and various unit patches that either he had cut off of old flying suits, or had never been sewn on. At the very bottom of the pile was one that I almost missed. I know what sim that I'll be flying for a while.
