Video: Fallen Heroes Honored by Civilian Pilots with Flyover After Government Refuses

But the civilian pilots stepped in make it happen.
The Air Force pilots were killed in action over Laos during the Vietnam War and their remains were discovered in 2012 and returned for proper burial at Arlington. This Flight of Honor was truly awesome for the other pilots to plan and conduct.

The government may not always act in a way that’s deserving of the sacrifices that service members make, but there are always true patriots out there ready and willing to pick up the slack, and give our heroes the honor they so richly deserve.
