Air Force honors Gen. Robert Bond in Ashland
The United States Air Force demonstrated its respect and gratitude for the service of Lt. General Robert M. Bond Tuesday in Benton County when it buried the three-star general with full military honors. He was laid to rest in Ashland Cemetery with an honorary “missing man formation” flyover in the deep blue skies. Full military honors were rendered in the impressive ceremony. It has been categorically denied by Air Force officials that the test plane Gen. Bond was flying was a Stealth bomber or a Russian MIG. Officials would only say that it was a “modified” aircraft. He was promoted to Lt. Gen. on June 1, 1981 and was vice commander of Air Force Systems Command at Andrews Air Force Base.
