History of the First Flight

As a former Navy pilot, visiting the Wright Brothers National Memorial in North Carolina was something I have wanted to do for a very long time. Being at the location of the first ever powered flight felt so close to who I am…as I still take pride in what I did for my country and what I was able to accomplish.
