    My grandfather's medals.
    Chris A Kumnick Jr. was a Col. In the USAF and was a Master Navigator/Observer. My favorite quote to sum up his duties is...
    "It's been said that.... "The pilot flys the plain... While the Navigator/Observer fights the plain".
    Col. Chris A Kumnick Jr. served in WWII, The Korean War and The Vietnam War. He was part of the A.A.F. (Army Air Force), F.E.A.F. (Far East Air Force), R.A. (Regular Army), U.S.A.F. (United States Air Force) and S.A.C. (Strategic Air Command). He served his Country for 29 year's.
    He was Born on Feb, 6, 1919 in Bryan Ohio and died on March, 17, 2017 in Fairfield CA. He began his Air Force carrier in October 1942 and Retired at Travis Air Force Base in Dec 1971.
