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.
