Air Force Academy graduates honored

The Air Force Academy class of '63 held their 50th reunion this evening at Arnold Hall.

18 members of the class were killed during the Vietnam War, among them was Lt. Patrick Wynne who was shot down over North Vietnam in 1966.

He later died from his injuries. The family that cared for him vowed to return his Air Force Academy class ring to his family.

42 years later, the ring made it's way to his younger brother, the retired Secretary of the Air Force, Michael Wynne.

Lt. Wynne's class ring was given to the Class of '63 and is on display in Arnold Hall.
