  • Welcome Home and Well Done

    A long-deserved welcome home and military honors.

    'When Bryan Knight was 5 years old, he said goodbye to his father at an airport in Dallas, Texas, just before he was sent off to the
    Vietnam War

    'That was the last time he saw his father.'

    'A few months later, US Air Force Maj. Roy A. Knight, Jr., 36, went missing in action. The pilot was leading a flight of two A-1E aircraft on a strike mission over northern Laos when his jet was shot down on May 19, 1967.'

    'No one reported seeing a parachute before the aircraft crashed, bursting into flames, nor were beeper signals heard. He was declared deceased by the Air Force in September 1974. During that time, he was promoted to colonel.'

    'Earlier this year, the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency informed Knight that his father's remains had been found.'

    'On Thursday, Knight -- a pilot for Southwest -- flew his father's remains back to the place where he last saw him more than 50 years ago, Dallas Love Field Airport.'
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.
