Once in a life time opportunity...

Yesterday Phil had the awesome honor of being picked to represent his squadron and sit in on a briefing with MICHAEL B. DONLEY Secretary of the U.S. Air Force . It was quite the briefing and Phil learned a lot. Phil's wing commander told him that this is quite an honor and that his commander thought highly of him to give him such an opportunity. It took the wing commander over 23 years before he met the Secretary of the U.S. Air Force. Way to go Phil and being totally awesome to be picked out of a couple hundred people!
