Ace Visits Parkway
The Parkway High School Air Force Junior ROTC will celebrate its program’s 40th Anniversary by hosting the top flying “Ace” of the Vietnam War during a Leadership Symposium on May 11, 2012 at 9:30 am in the Auxiliary Gym.
Colonel (ret) Charles B. DeBellevue became the first Air Force Weapon System Officer to become a flying “Ace” in 1972 and the War’s “Top Ace” with 6 MIG kills to his credit. Ironically, his first MIG kill occurred on 10 May 72 at 9:42 am—40 years and 1 day from the symposium. He is the recipient of the Air Force Cross, 2 Silver Stars, 2 Legion of Merits and 5 Distinguished Flying Cross’.
Colonel DeBellevue will be making two appearances while in the area; one at the Eighth Air Force Museum Association’s Distinguished Speaker Series Spring Dinner at the Eldorado Resort Casino on May 12th and the other at Parkway High School on the date stated above. He plans to discuss leadership and what it was like flying into, at the time, the most heavily defended area of the world.
