s/o Alva C. Hughes and Jennie B. Prine
Gerald Hughes began a long and distinguished career with the United States Air Force as a flight crew member serving with honor and distinction in both the Korean and Vietnam War campaigns. Upon his retirement from active military service in 1973, his strong desire to educate and pass on to the youth what he had learned in life, prompted him to become a vocational education instructor, teaching both aircraft and automotive mechanics for several years for the Texas A&M University system. After several years as an accomplished educator he again felt the need to once again serve his country. Gerald then began his second military career as a fleet vehicle mechanic working Civil Service at Brooks Air Force Base, Texas until his retirement in 1994. He was proceeded in death by his loving wife of 45 years, Annie Mae Odom Hughes.
