I rarely start a topic, but this gentleman is certainly deserving of his own. USAF Brig. Gen. Robinson “Robbie” Risner was best known as an F-105 pilot and POW during the Vietnam war, though he also flew in WW II and Korea (where he became an F-86 ace) and was an inspiration to those who served with him, and a served as a role model for those of us who came after him who were fortunate enough to wear Air Force wings.
A great leader and pilot has passed. RIP, Sir.
