MCAS Beaufort - The Color Guard marches on the colors during a headstone unveiling at the Beaufort National Cemetery, Feb. 10. The new headstone gives proper recognition to Petty Officer 1st Class William Pinckney's Navy Cross, the second highest award for valor. Pinckney was awarded the Navy Cross during World War II when he saved the life of an unconscious Sailor after a bomb exploded below the flight deck of their ship. The color guard is with Naval Hospital Beaufort.
