UPDATED June 5: The Town of Arlington honored the town's fallen veterans for a Memorial Day ceremony Monday, May 30, from 9:30 to noon, in Town Hall Auditorium.

For the first time in two years, residents and officials were able to gather in person.

The two guest speakers this year were: Navy Capt. (retired) Eric Jabs, below right, and Air Force combat pilot Capt. Taylor Bye. 

Capt. Bye was forced to land her A-10C Thunderbolt II after a catastrophic gun malfunction. She was met with major failures that prevented her landing gear from deploying, caused panels to fly off the aircraft, and ripped the canopy from the jet.

She managed to skillfully and safely land her A-10, earning her the Air Combat Command Airmanship Award.

She spoke at the Community Center (main room) on Thursday, May 26, from 5 to 7 p.m.

This event was open to the public and was free of charge. 

Capt. Bye spoke about her military career and challenges she overcame to achieve her goal as a combat pilot and field questions.
