Colonel Parker and Lieutenant Colonel Avant are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the founding of the 889th Air Rescue Squadron in Tallahassee. The celebration took place at the Capital City Country Club. The squadron was organized prior to the organization of the USAF on 18 September 1947 and was believed to be the oldest Air Force squadron in the US with a continuous operational activity. These men were the only two of the original 30 who were still active in the squadron.
