This photo has appeared elsewhere, but I thought it should be here too.  Happy Memorial Day to all who have served.

Thanks for the posting, Mike. I can't describe my feelings when I look at that picture.

Looks like a nice setting for a final resting place. What do the letters at the bottom mean?

I asked Andy and Maureen the same thing Steve. DFC is Distinguished Flying Cross.
AM stands for Air Medal, a decoration awarded for meritorious conduct in flight operations.
OLC stands for Oak Leaf Cluster, which denotes multiple awards of the same medal or decoration on different occasions.
The Meritorious Service Medal with two oak leaf clusters was awarded three times. And the Air Medal was awarded five times.
