Mission: Peter Johns

Here’s a note I received last week from one of our pilots, Bill Kendrick:

Peter Johns was severely burned about a year ago in an electrical fire while serving on a US Navy carrier. He’s had surgery to reconstruct his face, and his hands are so disfigured that he has to wear gloves. Despite these and other complications, his goal is to get back to active duty.
On April 8th, I had the honor of transporting Peter and his mother from Denton, TX to San Antonio, TX, where he’s receiving treatments for his injuries. I was inspired by his patriotism and his positive attitude. I hope he reaches his goal.
