CAFB honors Memorial Day, pays tribute to late pilot from Class 09-10

Attendees stand for the playing of taps and the unveiling of Maj. Andrew C. Becker’s name on the memorial wall in the Richard “Gene” Smith Plaza during a Memorial Day service inside the Kaye Auditorium May 24, 2018, on Columbus Air Force Base. Since Columbus AFB became a pilot training base in 1971, 85 pilot training graduates and instructor pilots have died in the line of duty and their names have been added to the memorial wall in the plaza.
