Flag Folding Ceremony

Amber Skelton, the great niece of Staff Sgt. Alvis Tinsley, talks about her uncle and the experience of visiting his grave at Ardennes American Cemetery in Belgium. “One of my favorite quotes displayed at the cemetery is ‘To the silent host who endured all and gave all that mankind might live in freedom and in peace,’” said Ms. Skelton. “We are very honored and proud to accept this flag on his behalf.” (Air Force photo by Kimberly Woodruff)
