Harold F. Meyers – Air Force Veteran
By Harry Loud

Lieutenant Colonel Harold F. “Hootch” Meyers (U.S.A.F. Ret.), 43, was laid to rest on Sept. 23, 2010. A former resident of North Levittown, he passed suddenly at his home in California after serving some 20 years in the U.S. Air Force, having retired this past April.

It was his desire as a young man growing up in Levittown to become a pilot and at age 18 he joined the U.S. Air Force.

His persistence, along with schooling, eventually led to his attaining the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. During his climb up the ladder he worked at various bases, held a position in the Pentagon and became the pilot he had always desired to be.

Hootch, as he was affectionately known, a name that was scrolled beneath the cockpit of the jets he flew was considered “a man’s man.” He held some of the highest combat numbers in the history of the U.S. Air Force and at one time the U.S. Navy tried to recruit him to fly for them.
