The Air Force Academy is an inspiring place to visit. I was there during a time known as Beast. This is the time when, new incoming cadets, go through a rigorous series of events to test mental and physical toughness as well as forming cohesion as a class. One of the highlights of a visit to the Academy is a visit to the chapel. I had been in the chapel many times but this is the first time I noticed that the front rows are roped off and have a dedication plaque to POW MIA’s. The rows remain empty in remembrance of those who can not attend. This is just one of the ways the Academy strives to honor those who serve; past and present, while training up our future.
I had the pleasure of speaking to NBC5 news about the POW table project. Living in a state that supports its military and first responses so much has made serving in this way a true honor.

Yesterday was the 73rd anniversary of the landings of the allied forces at Normandy. The next time you see someone wearing a baseball cap that says WWII on it just remember…
Then shake their hand and thank them for your freedom!
