On this Memorial Day…

My father, Colonel Robert Mand, hardly ever spoke about his military service, his over 30 years of service in the Air Force, beginning in World War Two, lasting through Vietnam. He flew almost everything the Air Force had in WW2 (bombers, transports), flew in the Berlin Airlift, fought in Korea, was the head of air traffic control in Vietnam and finished his career at the Pentagon. He died last year and was buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
