Vietnam Veteran: Bennett Traylor, USAF (Ret.)

Bennett Traylor, Digital Portrait

As part of my continuing tribute to Spokane area Veterans, This portrait is to honor my fellow veteran, close personal friend and brother in Christ, Bennett Traylor (Tray).

I met Tray twenty years ago at the Base Chapel at Fairchild Air Force Base after I returned from a deployment.

I’ve continually been impressed with Tray’s willingness to help others, his outgoing personality and cheerful disposition even in adverse situations. I admire him not only for his service to our country, but his ongoing service to our veterans in the community through the VA and also to me personally. This portrait is a small token of my appreciation for all he does! God bless you brother, Tray!
