    MAV Birthday Flight

    Posted by Frank Keitz (CIC) on 11/10/2014

    Marine Air Virtual held our 2nd annual Marine Corps birthday commemorative flight on Sunday November 9th 2014. Everyone who participated in this event had a great time. The event was attended by USMC Gen Mike Shea, USMC Col Hal Morse, USMC Col George Pavlatos , USN Brig Gen Steve Cocks, and VAS Brig Gen Stuart Green. The event was sponsored by the MAV Marines under the direction of Gen Mike Shea with Col Hal Morse acting as flight lead. Brig Gen's Steve Cocks and Stuart Green demonstrated an aggressor challenge along the flight route. It was a nice interlude from the normal pace of day to day flight operations. Gen Shea thanked each of the participants and stated this type of events will continue with varied themes. Special mention goes to Col George Pavlatos who made the flight during the wee hours of the morning local time from is home in Greece. General Shea lead the group by singing the song "Happy Birthday" to the USMC which celebrates the 239th birthday of the corps today November 10th, 2014. 


    Congratulations to all participants. It was a resounding success.
