Squadron Meeting, 1 November 2012

The meeting this week will be our monthly safety meeting and the topic will be "Winter Driving" presented by CAPT Alexander Smith. Afterward, we will need to discuss several important matters, principally finalizing the Squadron FY 2013 goals and addressing our meeting topics and planning for the anticipated SAREX we will be conducting with Squadron 40 in Fullerton.

On another subject, this past Sunday, the squadron participated in a recruiting effort with Squadron 153, Squadron 41, and other units at the annual Wheels, Wings, and Rotors exhibition and air show aboard Los Alamitos JFTB. The weather was flawless, the show was very entertaining, and the times were good. I personally was very proud of those in our unit who volunteered their time and effort to make this a successful recruiting foray.

Special thanks goes to 2LT Paul Koons and CAP Alexander Smith and the others who braved the cold and dark to set up the venue and man the tables. Please also join me in thanking MAJ David Walters, 1LT Bodo Rau, SM Frank Reinmiller, and CAPT Mike Cardenas for helping out as well. I am especially grateful for CAPT Valerie Gaucci and 2LT Dennis Gaucci for their assistance and support.

(..humbly beg your forgiveness if I neglected to mention you; it's this old age thing, you see. In any event, chastise me at the meeting and I'll treat you to a beer at the Ready Room.)

Anyway, do NOT fail to show this Thursday; we got some powerful work to do!
