On Wednesday, April 21 from 2:00 to 3:00 PM, USAF U-2 Pilot Colonel Richard G. “Duke” Woodhull, Jr. (Ret.) will present the program “What You Ought to Know About the Military.”
This program and all future museum programs and movies will be held at the Transylvania County Board of Elections meeting room, located at 150 South Gaston Street in downtown Brevard (this is the “early voting” building). Admission is free.
Woodhull’s Cold War and Vietnam-era military and diplomatic assignments serve up an exciting array of stories, including his service:
• As jet tanker crew commander during the Cuban Missile Crisis
• Piloting U-2 high altitude reconnaissance aircraft
• Flying with the Brazilian Air Force
• As US Defense and Air Attaché
Operation Crowflight is one of the Cold War operations in which Woodhull served as USAF pilot.
In addition to these and other stories, Woodhull will share his realistic perspective and insights on:
• The positives and negatives of serving in the military
• Why the museum’s mission is “Honor, Educate, and Preserve”
• How we know that George Washington truly IS the “Father of Our Country”
Woodhull’s book, Flying High…Memoir of a 30-Year Adventure will be available for purchase for $20.00, and will be autographed by the author.
