All of the B-1B bomber's different tail flashes recently were visible on the flight line at Dyess AFB, Tex., announced base officials, Sept. 6, 2011. They said this marked the first time that the different tail flashes were at the same base at the same time since the consolidation of the B-1 fleet in the mid 2000s. Here, B-1s representing (left to right) the 28th Bomb Wing (tail flash EL) at Ellsworth, S.D.; 412th Test Wing (ED) at Edwards AFB, Calif.; 53rd Test and Evaluation Group (OT) at Nellis AFB, Nev.; Nellis' 57th Wing (WA); and Dyess' 7th BW (DY) on the Dyess flight line, Sept. 1, 2011.

Memorial Day is a time to remember all those who died fighting for their country, just like A1C William Pitsenbarger, an Air Force pararescueman who took part in more than 250 rescue missions before he was killed at the age of 21. His selflessness and valor in the Vietnam War earned him an Air Force Cross and, eventually, a Medal of Honor.
