Thomas Hudner Jr. tells a humorous story from his flying days during a ceremony in his honor at Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass., Dec. 4, 2014. Hagge is the weapons systems officer of the F-18F Super Hornet that bears the name of Hudner on one side and Ensign Jesse Brown, the pilot Hudner tried to rescue, on the other. SFS 32 is the descendant of the unit Hudner flew with during the Korean War. Hanscom hosted the event on the 64th anniversary of the Korean War actions that earned Hudner his Medal of Honor.
