Synopsis

Founders' Flight, we had a great evening celebrating our two scholarship recipients, Cadet Johnny Montgomery at Stanhope-Elmore HS and Cadet Trevor Hearing at the University of Alabama. There were 33 in attendance to see Johnny receive his Daedalians flight jacket and Trevor receive his scholarship check. Our speaker was a fellow Daedalian and new AWC Commandant, Brig Gen Jeremy Sloane, who gave us a fascinating insider account of rescuing a downed pilot during Operation ALLIED FORCE in 1999. The Maxwell Club prepared a great meal in the Daedalian Room. The vice flight captain, Gen Peck, offered a toast to Gen Cleveland on the occasion of his 90th birthday.
