Blue Skies – Gerry Beck

July 28, 2007 at 8:06 am 2 comments

Rather than fumble for words, I’d prefer to let someone who knew Gerry express the grief. I’ve grown very fond of the whole air racing community and I “lurk” on their boards frequently. I don’t know much. I’m just a fan. But I’m really feeling the blues right now with all that has happened this week. Anyway – here’s Wayne’s post on Gerry. Well put in my opinion.

Update: Here’s a post I made last year on Gerry Beck. It’s a small taste of why Gerry was so special to the community.

Update2:  Victor Archer’s artistic tribute to Gerry.  Well done!

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
