Passing the torch: from the Greatest Generation to Generation Next

Leonard and Alma Scott pin new rank insignias on their daughter, Lt. Col. Kimberly Scott, 728th Airlift Squadron, during her promotion ceremony October 3, 2009. Colonel Scott's pinning on ceremony included not only members of her immediate family, but also members of the Tuskegee Airmen. Retired Lt. Col. Edward Drummond administered the oath of office. "Members of the Tuskegee Airmen have mentored, encouraged, and supported me over the years," said Colonel Scott. "It was incredibly meaningful to me to have been sworn in by him."
