It was an overcast day but that didn’t stop our young soccer players from coming out to the center circle for a game of soccer with their wackiest of socks on. We saw mismatched, stripes, Hello Kitty, bright orange, polka-dotted, super hero, chevron pattern and safety yellow socks, just to name a few. It was a site for sore eyes.
We even saw a few parents and players that participated in the Color Me for a Cure 5K earlier that morning that were sprinkled with colorful powder.

Farrar’s western-style shirt, complete with black snap buttons, his blue jeans and athletic shoes are a far cry from the dress blue U.S. Air Force uniform a much young Farrar is wearing in a photograph sitting on the mantle.
Or from the flight suit he wears in another picture, as he stands beneath the missile-laden wing of a B-52 bomber.
