Because it's Memorial Day, this seems like a good place to tell to this story.
Marty Flynn. Great man, terrific NCO.
Marty died while flying a mission on a helicopter in Vietnam doing search missions for troops that had fallen during the Vietnam conflict and never returned to the United States.
He was a great NCO that took his job very seriously, but he also took a young Airman under his wing and taught him a thing or two when he thought he knew everything.
No humor in this story today. Just a small rememberance of a man that I was proud to call boss, friend, and compatriot.
Miss you Marty.
