Tribute for: Robert Farmer  (Mercer Island, WA)
Tribute left by: Maryann Bayless (Dana Point, CA)
My Air Force hero is my father, still alive today at 83 years old. Through serving his country in his P-51 Mustang in Italy, working in the aircraft and space programs with Curtiss Wright, Boeing and Nasa, towing gliders during retirement,and his general love for all things in flight, he has inspired me to aspire to my highest of goals and seek excellence. It is a blessing to have had this humble man for a father; to have learned from him that heroism is hard work, noble, and its own reward.
