World War II veterans take flight

Ret. U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Morris L. Quick Jr., his son Edward Quick and Ret. U.S. Air Force Col. Bill Myers, pose for a photo in front of a Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter June 17, 2016, at the Army Aviation Facility on Buckley Air Force Base, Colo. Quick and Myers are both part of the Order of Daedalians, which honors WWI aviators as the first to fly United States aircraft in a time of war. The two men, now in their late 90’s, both served in WWII, Korea and Vietnam. Both men have a connection with Colorado. Quick flew out of Buckley Field during WWII and Myers was a part of the Colorado Air National Guard. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Luke W. Nowakowski/Released)
