    Besides the normal BYU game this Saturday, the academy is also having a remembrance for 9-11, those who's lives were lost, risked, and their families. Thudgate is also going to be honored by Detective Steve Hayden and Firefighter Ken Haskell and their wives. They are 9-11 honorees. We will also be joined by Brigadier General Steve Ritchie, the last remaining pilot Ace of the USAF and the pilots who were involved in the flyover. Hope to see you there if you're in the neighborhood. Read the link above for details. Mike....

    "...Brigadier General Steve Ritchie, the last remaining pilot Ace of the USAF...

    Hmm...Mike...please don't say that TOO loud...

    Brigadier General Robinson Risner, USAF (8 victories)
    Colonel James Kasler, USAF (6 victories)

    These are two of the ones I know of still "alive and kicking..."

    Glad to hear there are still a few of the old heros left. Thanks steve. I was simply quoting the post on the other thread. No disrespect to General Risner or Colonel Kasler. If I get a chance, I ask General Ritchie if he has any contact with the others. Thanks for the info. Mike....
