Lt. Col. Mike Ware served 21 years as a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot before retiring to Collierville and joining FedEx. He volunteers at Forever Young Sernior Veterans and the VA Medical Center.  

If you ask about their service, you will hear stories of great joy, great sorrow and lasting friendships. From this personal contact, you will know better the soul of the American soldier, sailor, airman or Marine.
