After returning from an F-105 mission flown on his birthday, Col. Charles T. Watkins, Chief of Maintenance for the 355th TFW, displays an American flag he took with him, with the  help of the flag's owner, TSgt. Wayne E. Easter. Easter obtained the flag from his Congressman, who had it flown over the nation's capitol.
