From Iwo Jima in WWII to Tucson Today: 47th Fighter Squadron flag still flies

Susie Moreno, conservator technician of Tohono Restoration, and Timothy Lewis, art conservator of Tohono Restoration, heat and stir a mixture of rabbit fat to be applied to a World War II era 47th Fighter Squadron Flag at the 47th FS clubhouse, Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., April 14, 2022. Heating the rabbit fat is a delicate process Lewis and Rubio have mastered as the temperature must be just right for optimal use to not damage the canvas when being applied.
