Military Monday


I am sure most of you remember the story of Capt. Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger. He and his crew managed to land a plane safely after birds struck both engines on Jan. 15, 2009.

On April 16, 2009 "Sully" received an airmanship award for his actions that day. He received the award at the Air Force Academy in Colorado from which he graduated in 1973. The full story can be read here.

When he was commissioned, Sullenberger was named best aviator in his class, winning an award called "Outstanding Cadet in Airmanship." Somehow this does not surprise me at all. He served in the Air Force until 1980, when he became a commercial pilot.

Once again, congratulations to Capt. Sullenberger and his crew on a job well done!
