1. George Lindsey, Walker High School, Jasper, Alabama, Class of 1946 - WEBMISTRESS' NOTE: If you're not in the habit of reading Memorial Editions, I strongly recommend once again that you make an exception this time.
And why, you may ask, are we including this here? That's easy; George was a close friend and neighbor of Rip Collins ('65) of TN, and Rip assured George that we would! Don't miss the irreverent, touching, funny, and incredibly loving remembrance Rip wrote of George. Thanks, Rip!

Off We Go Into the Wild Blue Yonder
Written by Robert MacArthur Crawford (27 July 1899 - 12 Mar 1961), 1939
Off we go into the wild blue yonder
Climbing high into the sun;
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,
At'em boys, giv'er the gun!
Down we dive spouting our flames from under,
Off with one hell-uv-a roar!
We live in fame or go down in flame,
Nothing'll stop the US Air Force!
Minds of men fashioned a crate of thunder
Sent it high into the blue
Hands of men blasted the world asunder,
How they live God only knew!
Souls of men dreaming of skies to conquer
Gave us wings ever to soar,
With scouts before and bombers galore,
Nothing can stop the US Air Force!
Here's a toast to the host of those who love the vastness of the sky,
To a friend we send the message of his brother men who fly.
We drink to those who gave their all of old,
Then down we roar to score the rainbow's pot of gold.
A toast to the host of men we boast the US Air Force.
Off we go into the wild sky yonder,
Keep the wings level and true!
If you'd live to be a gray haired wonder,
Keep your nose out of the blue!
Flying men guarding our nation's borders,
We'll be there followed by more,
In echelon we carry on!
Nothing'll stop the US Air Force!
