On March 22, local Flight 62 of the Order of Daedalians hosted a monthly dinner program, at The Club, on Nellis AFB. The guest speaker (name withheld for security purposes) shared an informative presentation about use of M-Q1 Predator/MQ-9 Reaper unmanned aerial vehicle weapon systems over the past several years.
The crowd of 50 guests included: Kerney Sigler, a 98-year old retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel, who flew B-29 bombers during WWII and also participated in the Berlin Airlift. The youngest attendee was Sebastian Crawford, a high school senior who participates in the Air Force Junior ROTC program at Rancho High School, who thanked the local Order of Daedalians, Flight 62, for providing him a scholarship to help attend flight school. He also shared that he learned earlier in the week of his acceptance to the US Air Force and US Naval Academies.
The next local Flight 62, Order of Daedalians monthly dinner program is scheduled for Thursday, April 27, 2018.
