42nd Freedom Flyer Reunion
Phillip Jones, Vietnam combat infantry soldier, takes a closer look at the names on the POW MIA vehicle during the 42nd Freedom Flyer Reunion at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph March 20. The events honor all POWs held captive during the Vietnam War. The tradition began when members of the 560th Flying Training Squadron were given the task to retrain more than 150 POWs returning to flying status. To honor their return, their initial training included a “freedom flight.” The last group of POWs was released from captivity in North Vietnam March 1973. (U.S. Air Force Photo by Harold China)
