I love these photographs of Tony LeVier. I never met him, but he was a friend of my mother’s family and a frequent visitor to their home. I love your high-quality, large format photos. I check your site every day to see what might be new. Thanks!

I am happy to know that goys of your generation have not forgotten super guys like Tony. Living in Alabama these days I miss the Daedalian dinners in Washington and hearing Tony tell more stories….like the time he dead-sticked an F-104…Low Key was 15,000 feet! And congratulations to your mom for giving you such a great name. Bryan Bennett, Col. USAF (Ret.)
