Aerotech News Digital Edition - July 10, 2020

Hello everyone, and thanks for checking out the July 10th issue of Aerotech News and Review! Antelope Valley veterans had the privilege recently of coming forward to salute one of their own. World War II-era Army Air Corps veteran Thomas Conroy, Sr. enjoyed a 98th birthday parade convoy on July 5, courtesy of numerous local veteran support groups and individual well-wishers. Participating groups included Patriot Guard Riders, Patriot Crusaders, American Legion Riders, Coffee4Vets, Vets 4 Veterans, Point Man Antelope Valley and more. We join them in a big Aerospace Valley salute, and hearty wishes to Conroy for a year of good health and family companionship.
