JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-Randolph, Texas - Retired Col. Forrest Kissinger (left) poses for a photo prior to his deployment to Vietnam in 1968. Nicknamed "Dutch," he served as a fighter pilot during the war, flying the F-4 Phantom. He would inspire his son, Lt. Col. Andrew Kissinger (right) to become an Air Force pilot. The younger aviator recently retired after 32 years of uniformed service that included thousands of hours in the B-52 during the Cold War. (U.S. Air Force graphic by Kimberly Parker)
