Today’s Star Star Spangled Salute honors World War II veteran Robert McClintock.  Robert joined the Army Air Corp in 1941 and became a commissioned pilot at the age of 23.  He flew 86 combat missions over Italy and Northern Africa during his service.   After the war he attended Temple University and joined their Westminster Choir.  Over the years he’s performed at the Mormon Tabernacle and Carnegie Hall.  Yesterday, on the home ice for the Tampa Bay Lighting, Robert was joined by Air Force veteran Sonya Bryson and the two of them sang our national anthem.  He did this 2 days after celebrating his 101st birthday. Thank you Robert and Sonya for your service.
