About the Author: Dick Jonas was born and raised in the Suwannee River valley of northern Florida. He served four years as an infantryman in the Georgia Army National Guard while attending Valdosta State College. Upon graduation in 1965 he entered the Air Force, receiving his commission through Officer Training School. In 22 years service he flew 3,000 jet fighter hours in the F-4 and F-16. During 125 missions in Vietnam he earned the Distinguished Flying Cross with two oak leaf clusters and the Air Medal with 12 clusters. After retirement from the Air Force, in 1986, he became an Aerospace Science Instructor in the Air Force Junior ROTC program. During 1991 and 92, in 325 performances he played the leading role in Guv: The Musical, a stage production of the Mill Avenue Theater in Tempe, Arizona. Dick retired from the teaching profession after 15 years of service, in June 2004. He is now a fulltime entertainer and music producer. His aim is to preserve and perpetuate the legacy of America’s warrior musicians — "The songs we sang about the planes we flew and the people we knew in the wars we fought." He is known as "America's Foremost Military Aviation Song Writer and Balladeer." He has produced fourteen albums of his kind of music, and published a book entitled RBAAB: The Red-Blooded, All-American Boy, containing song lyrics and war stories for the first six CDs. His latest book, "PTF: Passing the Flame," covers the songs and background on albums #7 through #13. Dick is an actor, a writer, a guitar-player, a singer, and a businessman. He also flies.
