This Joe Galloway article makes me very sad. I had the pleasure of meeting Ed (Too Tall to Fly) Freeman as well as Bruce Crandall. These men are true heroes. May Mr. Freeman rest in peace.
Most of you know that in the first photo, the USAF uniform is Capt. Jeff Donnithorne (flew some of the first bombings on Baghdad and has a Distinguished Flying Cross), my Uncle Bob Barker who is an Ia Drang Valley Vet, Ed (Too Tall to Fly) Freeman, and my cousin, Major Jim Lively (two deployments to Iraq and a Purple Heart)
The second photo is my Aunt Carolyn, Bruce Crandall and his wife and Uncle Bob at the Whitehouse for the MOH ceremony.
