On Sunday February 10, 2002, an official Change of Command ceremony was held at our Cadet meeting. CPT Karl Schultz officially stepped down after four years as Squadron Commander, and 1LT Mike Fassi stepped up as our new Commander.
Wing Commander COL Jack Bushmann and Group 2 Commander Maj Howard McClure attended.
Karl's list of accomplishments is long, most notable is that he remained Commander through four long years of many personal changes, including the last two years commuting from Denver. In those 4 years he changed jobs, got married, and moved twice.
Thanks to Ken McNaught for getting a really awesome cake! Good chocolate too :-)
Ken Anderson brought the yummy hot spiced cider, mmmmmm....
