A toast for the ages: 510th Fighter Squadron WWII members reunite

Col. (ret.) Ralph Jenkins (left), World War II 510th Fighter Squadron commander, receives a bottle of 1945 Calvados Brandy from Col. Leonard Kosinski (right), 62nd Airlift Wing commander and Chief Master Sgt. Tico Mazid, 62nd AW command chief at the Jenkins residence in Seattle, April 7, 2017.
