January 18, 2008: How Sweet It is

Pictures: nicknamed "Air Force Barbie" at boot camp for officers, the Barbie is still at her side, and Dad and Capt. Gail together.

I was invited to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio Tuesday where my daughter received recognition at a high level for her performance on several projects that had a significant impact upon USAF operations. Her area commander flew all the way from San Antonio, Texas to speak and personally honor her.

It is such wonderful feeling having a child reach that level of achievement, and to be so recognized within the most demanding of careers, military service. Having five children and their spouses presently serving as military officers, I still have the soft spot for "daddy's little girl", even though she is in every respect a women of leadership. I know they all were happy for Captain Gail on Tuesday, even though their duties kept them elsewhere.

Well done.
