Celebrating Young Scientific Minds

Vice Adm. Charles Richard, USAF, deputy commander, U.S. Strategic Command, Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska, spoke to the chapter and a gathering of Metropolitan Science and Engineering Fair award recipients in April on the value of pursuing your interests. The admiral commented on the importance of STEM and how impressed he was with the young scientific minds and the extraordinary projects they produced. He proclaimed to each award recipient that he or she has a unique skill set that can be used today. It can be tied to a capability used within the command and control facility. Adm. Richard encouraged the award recipients to be part of the group that can say "it works" because of something they did.
