On Friday, October 10, 1800-2200, Wings Over The Rockies Air & Space Museum will host its 5th Annual Tribute to a Fighter Pilot.  Biznet member Greg Anderson (USAFA '72 and President/CEO of the museum) writes as follows:
We are honoring General Ron Fogleman this year, and expecting a great turnout. It’s not often you get to rub shoulders with a Chief of Staff. We’ll make Wings into a Friday night O’Club for stories around a number of fighters with open cockpits, etc. Proceeds support expanding education outreach to develop future leaders.
Here's an except from the event web site:
General Fogleman graduated from the United States Air Force Academy in 1963 and performed combat duty
as a fighter pilot and high-speed forward air controller in Vietnam and Thailand.  In 1994, he became the first graduate of the Academy to advance to Chief of Staff of the Air Force.
General Fogleman will share fascinating stories of his career, like the tale of his dramatic rescue in Vietnam.  During a ground attack mission, his F-100 took numerous hits from ground fire. He ejected, evaded capture and, in a dramatic rescue, clung to the gun bay door of a U.S. Army Bell AH-1 Cobra gunship and was carried 20 miles to a special forces camp.
