Life Member ANA, CSNA, Member NI, IBNS Our daughter, Grace, received her Air Force Pilot‟s Wings in December. She will be flying the
MQ-1 Predator, which is a remotely piloted aircraft. She will be in Las Vegas flying an airplane located in Iraq or Afghanistan. Grace would rather be flying a “real” airplane, however Mom
thinks it is great that her daughter will be in a safe, easy to visit place that has lots of casinos. Dad is very proud.
