Rooster-Fighter Pilot is a riveting story about a boy who had a dream about flying. He lived out his dream by going to the U.S. Air Force Academy, becoming a fighter pilot flying and fighting in air-to-ground combat and air-to-air training in the U.S., Europe, Middle East, and Asia. He is still flying today instructing and flying Angel Flight patients to their doctors. He has a Bachelor of Science from the U.S. Air Force Academy, a Master of Science in International Relations from Troy State University and has graduated from the French War College program at École Militaire in Paris France. He completed two courses of instruction. The first one was the École Supérieure de Guerre Aérienne (Superior School of Air Warfare) and the second one was the Cours Supérieur Interarmées (Superior Inter-army School, or Senior Joint Warfare School). He has had Air Force assignments in five overseas countries and travelled to 43 countries. He speaks fluent French, which helped earn him the highest grade a foreign student ever won for his thesis on creating a French Aggressor squadron. He was also awarded the highest honor in the Federal Aviation Agency for a pilot, the prestigious Wright Brothers "Master Pilot" Award. He also won the Academic trophy in Undergraduate Pilot Training and The Commandant's Award at the Defense Language Institute.
