EXPANDED MEMBERSHIP ELIGIBILITY
“I vote yes.
When I was a flight captain in about ’78 I made similar recommendations to Daedalian HQ and was summarily snubbed.
Great initiative now, hopefully not too late.”
– Manfred S.
“Not always pilots only, as an Hereditary Member I have never been a pilot- unless you count 5 minutes with the Fuji blimp at Oshkosh- and am eternally grateful that membership criteria evolved in 1953 and at other times. Otherwise there would have been no active Order to be sworn into in 1997 when Admiral Feightner administered me the Oath. There were fewer than 500 Hereditary members at that time and probably far less now. My heart and my mind tell me that my Grandfather would support these changes that will grow and nourish the Order of Daedalians.”
– Richard S. lineage of William L. “Wild Bill” S*
“As Flight Captain of *** Flight., I endorse the proposed membership criteria changes and will do my best to convince flight members accordingly. However, I am only one former B-52 A/C who knows how our mission in Dec ’72 over Hanoi could only have been accomplished with our entire crew…Radar Navigator (bombardier) Nav, EWO, and Gunner. I have always been proud to be a pilot. That will never change and my pride is not dependent on keeping our Order membership criteria unchanged.”
– Richard J.
