Meaning of Memorial Day

A year-and-a-half into commanding the 920th Rescue Wing and Col. Kurt A. Matthews is getting ready to attend his fourth burial. The tragedy of the past year brought Memorial Day 2018 into perspective for 2,000 Reserve Citizen Airmen that serve with the 920th RQW. Matthews honored the lives of four wing members who were lost within the past year, two who were killed in combat March 15, 2018, MSgt. Bill Posch and SSgt. Carl Enis. During the event at the Brevard Veterans Center, Matthews presented the Honor and Sacrifice Flag to Lt. Col. Tim Hanks, 308th Rescue Squadron commander, to honor the ultimate sacrifice of 308th members Posch and Enis. (U.S. Air Force photo by Mr. Darrell Hankins)
