Larry Mullaly was awarded the Distinguished Service Award (our highest award) by the Wing for his constant dedication to the Minnesota Wing. Larry has been a pilot with the wing since very early on, and has flown everything that we have. He's trained a number of our pilots and has always been a knowledgeable, humble and hard working member of the wing. Larry has contracted Lou Gehrig's Disease and is no longer able to fly, but has still made himself available to teach our ground school. He was not able to attend our awards banquet, so we brought him out to our General Membership Meeting to present the award.
