C/SSgt Herman explains his grandfather’s WWII-era ribbons as Lt Col Orgain holds the display case (picture by Maj Matthew Phillips, NC052/CDS).

C/SSgt Christopher Herman talked about the meaning of an historical display of ribbons earned by his grandfather, who was a Navy aircrew member during World War II. The impressive display of ribbons, memorializing a number of impressive heroic acts, included the prestigious Distinguished Flying Cross.

Presentations like this one are a valuable part of CAP’s Aerospace Education opportunities, in addition to providing a chance to cadets to demonstrate public speaking and leadership skills.
