I copied this from the 21 August 2016 Ratnet Digest.
All you local Arid-zona Headhunters, here’s a chance to honor Dick for all that he has contributed to maintaining the fighter pilot spirit, not to mention for all the support he has given to the Association.
I think I may have shared this with some of you, but not all. I have been selected for induction into the Arizona Veterans Hall of Fame in the Class of 2016. I was nominated by my good friend Col Ron Perkins. Ron and I have been friends for several decades. He succeeded me in the position of Aerospace Science Instructor by a couple of iterations in the Air Force JROTC program at Cactus High School in Glendale AZ several years ago.
The induction ceremony is set for 28 October in Scottsdale AZ. If any of you have the time and/or inclination to join us for lunch, it’s $55 and I will be happy to spring for the meal. Deadline for reservation and payment is 30 September. Thanks.
