Gathering of Eagles

Michael was the faculty advisor for the Gathering of Eagles this year.  The students in his class spent the school year planning for the event, where they honor those who have made significant contributions through their military service.  We were excited to meet Colonel Gail Halvorsen, pictured with us in the red shirt, who is known as the "Candy Bomber."  He flew a C-54 (like the one pictured behind us) in the Berlin Airlift, and he distributed candy to the children in little parachutes.  He is a good man and we were so glad to meet him and all of the others.
