Patriotic songs

GRISSOM AIR RESERVE BASE, Ind. -- Peru High School's swing choir sings patriotic songs during a special base rededication ceremony held here Sept. 30. The base was originally named Bunker Hill Naval Air Station. It was renamed to Bunker Hill Air Force Base in 1947. In 1968, the base was once again renamed Grissom Air Force Base in honor of Lt. Col. Virgil I. "Gus" Grissom, the American astronaut who lost his life during a training mission aboard Apollo 1. In 1994, the base was realigned to be an Air Force Reserve Base and was named Grissom Air Reserve Base. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt. Mark R. W. Orders-Woempner)
