Peppers to speak at MOAA meeting

November 8, 2016
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Lt. Col. Gary Peppers will be the featured speaker at the regular monthly meeting of the Calusa Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America on Saturday, Nov. 12. His topic will cover drones-how they work, what they do, and why we use them. The 9 a.m. meeting will be held at Gulf Coast Village, 1333 Santa Barbara, Cape Coral.

Pepper's Air Force service began during Vietnam in 1969, with his final active duty in 2013 as a Predator pilot. Before he left active service for good, he became the last member of the active Air Force to have served on active duty during the Vietnam War. He went from being one of the youngest military pilots at age 20 to one of the oldest at 63. He'll explain exactly how RPAs (Remotely Piloted Aircraft, erroneously called "drones") operate and then describe a particular mission, simplified and "sanitized" of classified info, for which he received recognition in the drone ops world.

All current, former, and retired military officers and spouses are invited to attend. The cost for the buffet breakfast is $10.00, payable at the door. Reservations are requested and may be made by contacting Dixie Buick, 945-5030, or
