Throttle Full Open!
President's Cockpit / By MG Jeff Schloesser, Ret.
October was a busy month for us at AAAA, as we held our semiannual
National Executive Board meeting on Sunday, 13 October, followed by an
AAAA Past President’s reception.
At the board meeting we featured for the first time a conference
call-in capability, and we received very positive feedback from board
members who were unable to attend the meeting in person but did so
virtually. This also marked the first meeting attended by new board
member, Active duty Sergeant Ashley Sanchez, who provided us a great
perspective as a junior noncommissioned officer in Army Aviation. We
will be seeking a few other active duty board members to represent our
junior warrant officer and junior officer members as well.
Later that same week we hosted the Army Aviation Caucus on Capitol
Hill, chaired by Congresswoman Rosa De Lauro, Congressman Mo Brooks, and
Congresswoman Martha Robey. They had a superb and detailed exchange
with Army Aviation senior leaders, with Branch Chief MG Dave Francis
shaping the discussion.
That evening General Francis and the Aviation Six-pack joined our AAAA
National Executive Group for dinner with AAAA Senior Executive
Associates, a distinguished ten member group of retired four and three
star generals, hosted by Chairman General Scott Wallace and me. All in
all, it was a very productive series of engagements during that busy
AUSA week. Read More
