 Thank you for the posting.  What a great service you have done.  My husband spent 35 years in the AF, 10 as an enlisted man and retired as a full Colonel 10 years ago.  We frequently visit Arlington, because my Mother and Dad are there and my late brother-in-law, Bernard Lukasik and his wife, who is my twin sister, is buried with him
Again - Thanks!
