GWS Air Force Ball

The end of the Global Warfare Symposium is always marked by the annual Air Force Ball. As a vital part of AFA heritage, we celebrate the great accomplishments by individuals who have made significant contributions to aerospace. During dinner the General Thomas D. White Space Award went to Lt. Gen Larry James, and the General Bernard A. Schriever Fellowship to Richard McKinney. San Francisco Giants Closer Brian Wilson gave the Inaugural Michael Wilson Scholarship to Cadets Kaleb Simpson and Alexander Shuler, with touching words on his father's legacy of patriotism.

Also, we had a bit of a Hollywood treat. Actor Marcus Paulk and other representatives from Lucasfilm showed the trailer for Red Tails, the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, which will be debuting early 2012. 

Actor Marcus Paulk spent time with two Tuskegee Airmen in honor of the Lucasfilm Red Tails movie.
It was a momentous evening and a great end to a powerful week of discussion.For further information on the topics from the Symposium, look to Air Force Magazine's Daily Report. Transcripts are also available at
