DAYTON-WRIGHT CHAPTER CHAPTER - Jul 19, 2012

Luncheon Draws Crowd of Cadets

The chapter held its July luncheon at the Hilton Garden Inn. Rick Wegmann, chairman of the board, chaired the luncheon, which included attendee Lt. Col. Richard Rich Hughes, USAF, commander, Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps, Detachment 643, Wright State University. More than 35 cadets attended the event. Detachment 643 is also the host detachment for several Miami Valley universities and colleges, including Cedarville University, University of Dayton, Wittenberg, Central State, Wilberforce and Sinclair Community College. In 2011, SRC Incorporated provided $1,000 for the AFCEA Scholarship Fund. Steve Duning, assistant vice president/Dayton site director for SRC, and Rick DaPrato, federal account director, SRC, presented the chapter president and Wegmann with another $1,000 donation. In addition, the chapter wished farewell to Terry Holt of The Coffing Company for volunteering her time and lens to photograph the monthly luncheon's distinguished speakers. The chapter also highlighted the groundbreaking ceremony held at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. This park was a collaborative idea between Col. Amanda Gladney and the chapter's Young AFCEANs. The plaque on a simple pillar that marks the area reads: “Duty, Honor, Country. In Honor & Memory of our Fallen Heroes. Land of the Free, Because of the Brave.”
