Wing honors America's birthday

Master Sgt. Karen Ridge with the 932nd Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron, shares a laugh with retired public affairs specialist Tech. Sgt. Daniel Oliver, as they remember fond wing memories before the start of the big America's Birthday VP parade on July 1, 2017, in Saint Louis, Missouri. Volunteers of the 932nd Airlift Wing gave of their time to think of the history of America's Independence Day, and consider other military veterans who went before them, and sometimes gave the ultimate sacrifice of their lives. 932nd AW members and a few retirees worked together last week to fold the American flag back into its proper position at the end of their parade route. The 932nd Airlift Wing had a great group of enthusiastic volunteers who carried the Air Force Reserve Command banner and represented the unit in the popular Saint Louis parade which was televised live on local networks. The wing plans to help in the Veterans Day parade in November also. (U.S. Air Force photo by Lt. Col. Stan Paregien)
