Cptn Midnight in Air Force Color Guard

My uncle, Capt. Francis B Midnight, was part of the Air Force Academy's Color Guard in 1964. This picture shows him on the far right, holding a rifle. Additionally, this picture was used for a post card that was available for many years throughout Colorado. I am so proud of Captain Midnight!

Cpt Frank Midnight

I’m so pleased others have had his bracelet and corresponded with his mom. I did too. Only recently did I learn an odd connection. My son graduated USAFA 2014. Cpt Midnight was from his legacy class. Both my son and
cpt Midnight were in the same squad (34) at USAFA! In 2014 Squad #34 was named top squad. The secretary of USAF oversaw their commissioning. Legacy class members of 1964 were present.
