We had a Great Time Saturday at “Pilot Appreciation Day 2018” I am so glad that my wife, Sharon and our little Miss Mikayla could go along… (they both LOVE to fly)! It was wonderful spending some time with many of our fellow Pilots, along with the amazing folks from Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic that coordinate all of our flights!
The MC of this great event was Doug Cox, author, executive, songwriter, singer, poet, and an inspirational speaker who has touched the lives of thousands of people throughout the world…… Doug done a fantastic job, using his wit, humor and sincerity (You can visit his website at dougcoxonline.com)
Captain John and I were Honored to receive “Virginia Pilots of the Year” and “Regional Pilots of the Year for the whole Mid-Atlantic”….. Captain John had several other surprises as well ….. one of which was about “The Blue Uniform” (Click on the link below to find out more on this)
Captain John also received a letter of Acknowledgement from Frank Borman …. Commander of the Apollo 8 Space Mission that was the first to orbit the Moon 50 years ago! He received another letter of Acknowledgement and a “Coin” from David Goldfein, Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force! Many people were involved in bringing this all together…. a Great Big “Thank You” to Robb Alpaugh and all the ones working with him in making this a very amazing and fun event!
