Not every G.A.L.I. class has had the opportunity to fly in a Black Hawk helicopter as part of the group’s annual visit to the state legislature. This year’s class got to visit the Wyoming Air National Guard Base in Cheyenne in February, but due to strong winds (in Wyoming? Who knew!), the choppers were grounded for the day.
Brigadier General Gregory C. Porter generously offered to bring the Black Hawks to Gillette later on in the year. On April 8th, G.A.L.I. students, both from the present class and past classes, were able to take a ride around the skies over Gillette. Thank you to the Wyoming National Guard for visiting us!
