Recently, North High School's AFJROTC in Minnesota sent AFA a nice note to say "thanks" for the AFA grant they received earlier in the year. The school was able to use the funds toward a field trip to the local Air National Guard Base, taking 44 cadets to the base for a tour and a flight on an Air Force C130 aircraft.
"This was an awesome experience for the cadets. For many, this was their first time flying, which made it more exciting. As an Air Force retiree and AFJROTC instructor, it made me feel good to see the excitement in the kids faces. These cadets have a new found respect for our military men and women as well as a new love of flying. Thanks again for the grant that made this trip possible."
- SMSgt Wilkinson, AFJROTC Instructor
