National Guard Plans Flyover Monday

May 24, 2012 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

The Nebraska Air National Guard’s 155th Air Refueling Wing will conduct its annual Memorial Day flying salute over 60 Nebraska cemeteries after a one-year pause.
According to Col. Rick Evans, commander of the Lincoln-based wing, a Nebraska Air National Guard flight crew has volunteered to conduct an aerial salute of the state’s fallen veterans on Monday, May 28, using a single KC-135R Stratotanker. The salute consists of ceremonial flyovers over 60 separate Nebraska cemeteries ranging from Lincoln and Omaha, to Northeast and Central Nebraska.
The flyover will include Elgin and Neligh cemeteries. The flyover is schedule to take place at Neligh at 10:49 a.m., then fly over West Cedar Cemetery at Elgin at approximately 10:51 a.m.
This will mark the first time that the Nebraska Air National Guard until has conducted a Memorial Day flyover since 2010. Last year’s planned flyover was canceled after the unit’s available aircraft were ordered overseas to support operations in Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq and other world-wide locations.
“We’ve very excited to have the opportunity to salute our state’s fallen veterans who have given so much in the service of their state and nation,” said Evans.
“We’re particularly proud to resume this annual tradition in 2012 after pausing last year due to our aircraft and personnel being deployed overseas.
“The unit in general and myself in particular were disappointed we had to sit last year out and are glad this year’s operations tempo allows us to resume flyovers.

“Thanks” is such a small word for the enormity of words and deeds that have been said and done for our family during Kenneth’s illness this past more than a year.  To Father Ross and Sister Leta and the friends who visited him in both the hospitals and our home; to the dedicated and outstanding personnel at Boone County Health Center, Faith Regional Hospital, and Antelope Memorial Hospital; to the EMT’s who faithfully and promptly answered our many calls; to the EMHC who came despite the “bother”; to all of you who brought food throughout this time to our home, the wake and the funeral dinner; to the ladies who worked at the wake and funeral; to our neighbors who mowed the lawn and did many acts of kindness; to the hundreds of you who sent cards and gifts; to this far-reaching community for your overwhelming concern and kind words – we say “Thank You.”

How do we begin to thank everyone for all the support and prayers we have received over the past two years. William had many ups and downs since his heart surgery and so many have been there for us. Staring with the Elgin ambulance crew for their quick response to our calls, the staff at Antelope Memorial  for their care and concern; and the staff at Golden Living and Hospice for their gentle care the last four months. Thank you to Pastor Davis for his kind words at the service; Pam, Doug & Deb for the beautiful music and the Church Women for providing and serving the meal. To our neighbors and friends for all the prayers, cards, memorials, flowers, phone calls and food brought to our home and the church. Thank you to the American Legion, VFW, U.S. Army Guard and the Freedom Riders for their presence and escort, it was a very moving experience. Thank You!
