Piper with a cause

Mr. John Pierson, a former 939th Rescue Wing Reservist and pararescueman played ?Amazing Grace" and "Wings" on his bagpipes during the King 56 Memorial rededication ceremony at the Williamette National Cemetery, Nov. 17, 2006. He learned to play the bagpipes four years ago, and plays at ceremonies like these to honor the men and women who paid the ultimate price for freedom. ( U.S. Air Force Photo/Master Sgt. Linda Welz)
