 A Salute to Chuck Yeagar

He was young.
He was fearless.
Lucky was his middle name.
He rode a rocket ship through
the sound barrier that brought
him historical fame.

Forty thousand feet above God’s green earth
he sailed into the blue at the speed of sound,
creating the first sonic boom that was heard
all they way to Old London town.

On that day… he flew higher and faster
than any man had ever gone before,
and will be remember forever more!
American as apple pie…Chuck Yeagar
forever an Ace in God’s blue sky!
