HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - A new exhibit at the Mississippi Armed Forces Museum at Camp Shelby will be dedicated Feb. 13 to the late Air Force Reserve Lt. Col. David Anthony Williams.

Williams worked with Mississippi Power Company from 1966-2004. He was manager of wholesale marketing when he retired in 2004.

Williams served as a reconnaissance pilot with the Mississippi Air National Guard’s 186th Aerial Reconnaissance Group in Meridian from 1964-1974. He transferred to the Air Force Reserve in 1974, flying C-130 transports and WC-130 “Hurricane Hunters” from Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi until his retirement in 1991.

Williams was killed in an aviation accident in 2012. The materials for the exhibition were provided to the museum by his widow, Carol Williams.
