LAYTON — A host of military hats, uniforms and awards — representing each individual’s time of service in various branches of the military — was on display Nov. 11 in a crowded Central Davis Junior High School gym for the Layton City Veterans Day Commemoration event.
Having lived in Utah for only the past year, Col. Bryan Radliff, commander of the 419th Fighter Wing at Hill Air Force Base, spoke of Utah’s show of community support.
CLEARFIELD -- Students at Clearfield High School are getting hands-on experience in repairing airplanes at Hill Aerospace Museum as part of an aeronautical mechanics course.
On Nov. 27, a small group of students lined up around a C-7 Caribou that was damaged during a windstorm last year.
Using a hydraulic lift, several students were lifted to the plane's rudder to assess what tools were needed to remove it.
Museum Curator Nathan Myers said the rudder was anything but stable, with countless dents and rope strapping it onto the airplane.
LAYTON -- To keep busy while her husband was deployed for the last several months, Jessica Heck of Layton decorated a donated Christmas tree in his honor.
It was on display at the Festival of Trees at the South Town Expo Center in Sandy until Dec. 3.
But even better than having a tree on display, Heck got to welcome her husband home early from his deployment just days before the tree was set up at the festival.
