World War Two veterans are dying at a rate of 1000 per day. In an effort to acknowledge those who remain, a luncheon to honor them is taking place in Rapid City today. Among the activities planned for the gathering is a special honoring for one of the few remaining female military pilots of “The Greatest Generation.” 

When The Army Air Corps song was written in 1917 the average life-span of an American pilot flying over Europe in World War One was about 3 weeks.
