June Speaker

One of the missions of our group is to provide our members with the opportunity to learn from knowledgeable people. Anyone from a successful writer speaking about our craft, to a retired policeman explaining the intricacies of patrolling our streets. Just in the last few months we have heard from an arson investigator, a retired sheriff, and a detective. Not only are their topics interesting and informative, we get to pick their brains with our often disturbing questions. As mystery writers, we can come up with some real doozies. This month we will be learning about the military from GEORGE DANIEL “DAN” PFAFF, Lieutenant Colonel, US Air Force (Retired)





Greatest Accomplishments: Loving Jesus; staying married to my beautiful wife, Sheri, for 31 years; and raising three boys to be contributing members of society.

Other Minor Accomplishments:
- Air Force Command Pilot with over 7,300 flying hours and 467 combat hours
- Military pilot in the T-37 Tweet, T-38 Talon, A-10 Warthog, EF-111 Spark 'Vark', and B-2 Stealth Bomber
- Long duration sorties over Afghanistan (40 hours) and Iraq (17 hours) in the B-2
- Pilot for NetJets Aviation for the last 12 years in the Citation X, Citation Encore+, and the Phenom 300
- Flight Instructor and Evaluator for both the Air Force and NetJets
- Wasted two years in a non-flying staff job for USCENTAF (Air Force Central Command) which I thoroughly hated

Education:
- Bachelor of Science, Biology, US Air Force Academy
- Exchange Cadet to US Military Academy (West Point)
- Master of Aeronautical Science, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
- Master of Military Operational Art/Science, Air University (but I still always lose playing Risk!)
