On the anniversary of the founding of the U.S. Air Force, three generations of women gathered to celebrate.
Wanda Towner Harris, her daughter, Cindy Coram, and her granddaughter, Shelby Navarrette, celebrated the military branch they had given years of their life for. Their participation spanned from the Korean War to the Vietnam War to conflicts of the late 1990s.
The former southsiders shared stories of working as radio operators and air-traffic controllers and assisting with the upkeep of airbase operations. But most of all, they drew strength knowing that they had started and maintained a family tradition.
