Thank you for selecting my granddaughter, Ann J. Day, for one of the 173rd Airborne Brigade scholarships. Maybe I’m a tad biased, but it was a wise choice.
Ann is a superb student who will do good things in the years to come.
Both her grandfathers served in the military during the Vietnam War. I was an infantry platoon leader with the 173rd in 1967. Her other grandfather, Major Richard Cooper, USAF, was shot down while navigating his B-52 over North Vietnam in December 1972. He was declared MIA and later KIA.
Thank you again for selecting her.
