The short life and long legacy of 2nd Lt. George Whiteman

Airmen from the 509th Security Forces Squadron at Whiteman Air Force Base attend a ceremony for the opening of the Whiteman Corridor May 16, 2015, in Sedalia, Mo. The base was named after 2nd Lt. George Whiteman, a Sedalia native who was killed during World War II. The P-40B Warhawk points to lieutenant’s childhood home and represents the past, while the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber points toward the base and represents the future.
