Missouri Members Return to Capitol

Legislative plaudits

MOwingThe Missouri Wing’s Legislative Squadron grew by more than 40 when wing members from across the state gathered in person at the Capitol for the first time in two years for annual Aviation Day activities.

More than 70 wing members met with state legislators, toured the Capitol and nearby state Supreme Court building, and received triple recognition for continued exceptional community service throughout the state -- a resolution from the House of Representatives, a proclamation from the Senate, and a certificate of recognition from the governor’s office.

Organized by Lt. Cols. Michael McCrady, Group III deputy commander, and Randy Fuller, Legislative Squadron commander, the wing members’ visit also included being introduced on the House and Senate floors before their opening sessions and an information table set up in the Capitol rotunda.

“Because of the presence and efforts of our members that day, 44 new legislators or legislative staff assistants joined the Legislative Squadron, resulting in our largest single-day recruiting effort,” Fuller said. “In fact, applications are still coming in."
