Former prisoners of war retired Capt. Gregg Hanson (left) and retired Maj. Richard Bates (right) are joined by Janine Sijan in a moment of silence to honor prisoners of war during the Freedom Flyers wreath-laying ceremony at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph March 26. Janine is the sister of Capt. Lance P. Sijan, a Medal of Honor recipient who lost his life as a POW in Vietnam. The 560th Flying Training Squadron holds the annual Freedom Flyers Reunion, which gives prisoners of war a chance to take their final flights and honor those who are unable to. This year was the 47th Freedom Flyers Reunion.
