This remarkable photo book depicts the funeral with Full Military Honors of one of the most highly decorated helicopter pilots of the Vietnam war. Major James T. Newman, a legendary air cavalry commander, was buried at Arlington National Cemetery on February 18, 2009. Many of the Army aviators who served under Newman in combat nearly four decades earlier joined his family and friends to bid farewell on a cold, gray, snowy morning. A horse-drawn caisson bore the soldier's flag-draped casket to a gravesite overlooking the Pentagon as mourners followed on foot through the bitter chill of winter. Noted Washington photographer William K. Geiger www.billgeigerphoto.com captured the mood with stunning pictures of the time-honored military ceremony with soldiers in their dress uniforms ignoring the cold to execute with ritual precision the final salute to a comrade. Newman's biographer, Michael Putzel, www.michaelputzel.com describes the ceremony in accompanying text.
