Pretty cool. Brought tears to me. Both for the honor of these men and the despair I feel about our country. The current leadership cares nothing about people like these two pilots.

Very cool! Surprisingly, permission was granted for the flyover - the Pentagon is right next door to ANC. The two Majors got a "full honors" ceremony with caisson and band.
