Comrades are gone, but never forgotten
U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. (Ret.) Barry Bridger, former 43rd Tactical Fighter Squadron F-4 Phantom aircraft commander, smiles after sharing his story with Airmen and civilians from Team Langley as part of Prisoners of War/Missing in Action Recognition Day at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Va., Sept. 15, 2016. Bridger was shot down and captured during his 1967 deployment to Ubon Royal Thai Air Force Base, Thailand, for a combat tour with the 497th Fighter Squadron to fly night-missions into North Vietnam. He was then imprisoned for 2,232 days in the “Hanoi Hilton” camp in North Vietnam. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Nick Wilson)
