    To the men and women of the 14th Tactical Fighter Squadron, Cold War Samurai who served and sacrificed to deter the Bear, a hand salute! Your dedication to duty, whether freezing in a Northeast Asia winter, or sweating in a Southeast Asia summer, ensured a top notch fighter capability through that twilight of the Cold War.

Thank you, and may God bless you, one and all!
