David E. Taylor credits his inspiration to fly military aircraft to his 95-year-old father, Chester, who once flew B-29 aircraft during World War II.

On Friday, Taylor, 68, of Tequesta, was honored for his nearly two years of service as a Marine One pilot during the term of President Richard Nixon.
