Today’s Star Spangled Salute honors World War II veteran Jerry Tongue.  Jerry was a small plane pilot during the war and during that time, while he enjoyed flying the planes, he always dreamed of jumping out of them.  After the war life happened and as he got older he found it increasing difficult to make his life long dream come true.  That is, until recently, when a local sky diving company and private donations paid to see Jerry live his dream.  Jerry says he was happy he got to jump but doesn’t think he wants to do it all the time. Thank you for your service Jerry.
