With Memorial Day weekend at hand, maybe you’re planning a bar-b-que, a day at the beach, or a trip to the movies to see one of the summer blockbusters.
It’s easy for us to forget what the holiday is about, which is a day to remember those who served our country in uniform, and paid the ultimate price.
The Channel Cities Club, and a Santa Barbara veterans museum recently honored some of our local veterans, members of what has become known as the “Greatest Generation”, who served during World War Two.
KCLU’s Lance Orozco has the story of one of the men, a fighter pilot who flew more than 100 missions, shot down 12 planes, and eventually became an Air Force General before retiring in Santa Barbara.
