Quote of the Day

“Had it not been for thousands of people in the entire military and civilian support community who were proud of their work and performed it in a professional outstanding manner, I would not be a fighter ace and I probably would not be alive. So you can imagine, I am pretty thankful. I am very grateful. I feel very fortunate to receive so much of the credit that belongs to so many who helped make it all possible.”

-Brigadier General Steve Ritchie at the American Veterans Center’s 2008 conference. General Ritchie is the only ace fighter pilot of the Vietnam War.
