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


Considering how intent the Obama administration has been on dismantling our military, it’s not exactly surprising that honoring two fallen heroes from the Vietnam War wasn’t a priority. Thankfully, some veterans stepped up to do what the government should have done to begin with: honor and welcome home these pilots with a flyover.

For those of you who think Big Government has all the answers, just take a few minutes to watch this video. Two Air Force Pilots, Major Howard V. Andre Jr. and Major James E. Sizemore, were buried in 2013 at Arlington National Cemetery and were honored with a flyover by civilian pilots – the US Air Force claimed budget cuts prevented an Arlington flyover. 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.

It is truly inspiring to see how the military community never fails to take care of their own. 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.
