The things this man lived through...the things his eyes saw...the bravery and courage that defined so much of his life.
It's hard to put into words what this veteran has meant to our military community.
So from all of us, please accept our humble 'Thank You'.
Blue Skies, Sir!

SEATTLE — One of the first African American military aviators known as the Tuskegee Airmen, William L. Booker, has died at the age of 90.
Booker's family says he died Nov. 30 at a Kirkland, Wash., nursing home after a long battle with Parkinson's disease.
After World War II he worked for Boeing for 34 years. He served 10 years as president of the local Tuskegee Airmen's chapter.
Booker is survived by his wife of 45 years, Dolores, two sons, two daughters and grandchildren.
A memorial will be held Saturday at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Seattle.
