Today we announce the passing of another true war hero. Lt Col Bernell Whitaker who traveled with us in October of 2014 and had the honor of laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington Cemetery (pictured below). He was in the USAF for over 32 years. Mr. Whitaker served in WWII as a fighter pilot, was a POW of the Germans, served in Korea AND Vietnam. 3 Wars and a POW! He was a true war hero.
Our heroes are dwindling quickly & we encourage any of you with children & grandchildren to take advantage of the opportunity to meet the members of The Greatest Generation NOW - while you still can say you shook the hand of a WWII hero. Whit is just one of 800 WWII veterans that pass away each day in the U.S. May they all Rest In Peace, Soar with the eagles - and let us NOT forget their sacrifice.
Memorial service to be held Oct. 28, 2016 at 10:00 am, Basham Funeral Chapel 620 Oregon St. Bakersfield, Calif. Graveside Honors will follow at 12:30 pm, Veterans National Cemetery in Arvin, California.
