A full military honors funeral service honoring the ninth Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James C. Binnicker is scheduled to be held at 9 a.m. EDT, Aug. 14 at Arlington National Cemetery, Virginia.

Binnicker died March 21 in Calhoun, Georgia.

The ceremony is open to the public and expected attendance includes immediate family, friends, civic leaders and military members.

“Chief Binnicker was a leader amongst leaders,” said Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force James A. Cody. “We will always remember his service ... not because he was the chief master sergeant of the Air Force, but because he set the standard as an innovator and as a leader, because he added to our joy and brought triumph and glory to our Air Force, and because he left an everlasting impact on every Airman who crossed his path.”

The uniform of the day for military personnel attending the service is full service dress.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made to the Air Force Enlisted Village.
