Air Force twins receive French Legion of Honor for WWII service

Retired Air Force Reserve Majs. Raymond “Glenn” Clanin and Russell “Lynn” Clanin take time for interviews with reporters from various Los Angeles television stations in the Gordon Conference Center at the Schriever Space Complex of the Space and Missile Systems Center at Los Angeles Air Force Base in El Segundo, Calif., Dec. 2. The 92-year-old twin brothers are recent recipients of the French government's highest distinction for their military service as World War II veterans, the Legion of Honor medal, presented by Christophe Lemoine, French consul general in Los Angeles. In the background is an aerial photo of the Eiffel Tower, taken from the right pilot’s seat of the B-26 Marauder named Flak-Bait by Maj. Glenn Clanin as he “buzzed” the famous landmark after the Liberation of France during WWII. (U.S. Air Force photo/Van De Ha)
