Freedom Fighter: Doug Beggerly

During his thirty years in the Airforce, Lieutenant Colonel Doug Beggerly served in World War Two, The Korean War and Vietnam. He was also pilot of Airforce Two during Lyndon Johnson's Vice Presidency Doug Beggerly flew over three hundred combat missions during his Airforce career, earning numerous medals for valor including the Silver Star, Distinguised Flying Cross, and Air Medal. But he says perhaps the best accomplishment of all was serving his country in three wars..."and surviving".
