Beloved Air Guardsman Laid to Rest

Members of the 165th Airlift Wing said goodbye to one of their own today. Hundreds of people turned out at St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church to pay their final respects to Lt. Col. Greg Muller. He died Sunday morning of natural causes.

Muller served three tours of duty in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom, flying more than 200 missions. The Air Force awarded him the Air Force Air Medal for his actions.

"He gave so much of himself to the community and to his family," said Lt. Col. James Leith. "I think it's a testament to the kind of person that he was, that I would like for everybody to know he was a wonderful man. He was a very caring father, husband, a devoted Air National Guardsman with his friends out here in the Georgia Air National Guard."

Lt. Col. Muller lived his whole life in Savannah and served 24 years in the military, 19 of those with the 165th.
