On Monday, Nov 9, H.A. Tuck and Greg Gutting were privileged to make a presentation about the HSW and the CAF to students and faculty at Grady School (north of Stanton) during their annual Veteran’s Day Celebration. Bob Keating flew the T-28 with back seater Brent Collins who maintained ground communications, in a perfectly executed flyover for veterans, students, faculty and parents.
The celebration lasted most of the day and involved a lot of preparation by students, faculty and administrators. Decorations and daily lesson plans by teachers emphasized the important role that veterans have played in our nation’s history.
The presentation went smoothly and students were well-behaved, attentive, and curious about what we had to say. I think we can look forward to another invitation next year.

The HSW had some unexpected visitors on Halloween morning. This visit was definitely a treat for those working at the wing this morning.
