Laughlin’s student squadron received a visit from Jerry Yellin, author and retired U.S. Army Air Corps Captain, Dec. 13, 2016.
By invitation, Yellin was the guest speaker for Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training class 17-03, received an orientation flight and spoke during an all call while here.
“It was a pleasure speaking with a man as dedicated to military aviation history as Jerry Yellin,” said Capt. Scott Molleson, 47th Operations Support Squadron assistant director of operations. “[Yellin’s] presentation of hope for those affected by the casualties of war was moving to say the least.”
