Today we recognize Colonel James Faulker.
Colonel Faulkner served in the Air Force from October 1962 until August 1991.
During his 29 years of active service, the Air Force allowed Faulkner to reach his childhood goal to fly an airplane.
One of his most memorable moments was flying the B-52 in airborne nuclear alert missions during the Cold War.
Colonel Faulkner, thank you for your service.
