Last weekend, our cadets traveled to Dayton, Ohio for the AF Marathon! They visited the National Museum of the United States Air Force, the Huffman Prairie Flying Field, and Wright Patterson AFB. On their first night there, they had the honor of eating dinner with Colonel Michael E. Phillips and his family. We thank them for their hospitality! This trip was filled with many laughs and teachings from Colonel Phillips and SSgt Crenshaw who chauffeured our cadets. This was a great experience for them all and they look forward to coming back next year!
