On Course to the Summit!
President's Cockpit / By MG Jeff Schloesser, Ret.
It is hard to believe it’s already February! We at AAAA National Headquarters and your National Executive Group are hard at work to make our Army Aviation Mission Solutions Summit this April a REALITY.
As a reminder, it is 21-23 April at the Gaylord Opryland, in Nashville, TN. I wrote last month that we are taking every means possible to actually hold the 2021 Summit in person and will be announcing enhanced measures we plan to utilize in the near future. Warning order: they could include taking a COVID test at or prior to the Summit, and clearly coming back negative, or showing proof of a completed vaccination series. Please consider receiving the vaccination when it is made available to you. Our Army senior leadership is leading the way, and in fact, many if not most of Army Aviation senior leaders have already received at least their first shot.
Congratulations to America’s new Secretary of Defense, Secretary Lloyd Austin. A former Army Vice Chief of Staff and CENTCOM Combatant Commander, he is no stranger to Army Aviation and our contribution to deterrence, warfighting, and homeland support. All of us at AAAA wish him the very best as he undertakes his duties!
