World War II POW and former Olympian Louis Zamperini will visit Edwards Dec. 10. Zamperini is the subject of the #1 New York Times Best Seller book “Unbroken.” Supervisors will hand out tickets to people in their unit to attend his presentation at the Base Theater. If you would like to submit a question to be considered for the Q & A session, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon, Dec. 7.
Attendees are expected to show up at least 30 minutes prior and be seated 15 minutes beforehand. Those who don’t receive tickets will be able to view the event live in their unit conference room. Talk to your Wingman Day POC for more information.
Everyone is invited to come welcome Zamperini around 10 a.m. when he arrives at the Red Carpet on the flightline side of Base Operations, Bldg. 1202. A free zone in that area will allow Team Edwards to offer him a warm welcome.
To access the free zone, walk through the gate on the east side of Bldg. 1202. Pictures are not allowed on the flightline at any time. Remember, the flightline is an operational area and everyone is advised to make sure nothing that is with you can fall off or be blown off causing FOD. This includes hats.
2012 Angel Tree
This year’s Angel Tree is up and located in the entrance to the Base Exchange through Dec. 13. The tree has tags with age and gender of a child of a military family here at Edwards. Folks can purchase clothes or age appropriate toys and drop them in the Angel Tree box. The program is a way of giving back to the families that support the warfighter. The winter season is all about children, families and spreading holiday cheer.
