Wishing all our colonial cousins in the USA and the UK a happy Independence Day today the Fourth of July.
Pictured below is Cadet Staff Sergeant Jackson Wynn whilst visiting the UK he stopped off to visit Ely Squadron and catch up with his lifelong friend and ex school pal Cadet Flight Sergeant Rory Donoghue.
Jackson and Rory met each other in Nursery School when Jackson’s father -a USAF SNCO- was posted to the UK.
The two boys became firm friends and progressed through Preparatory School together.
Both boys developed their love of competitive sports whilst at Prep school and they went on to dominate the independent school’s rugby, football and athletics competitions.
Continuing along that theme, last weekend Flight Sergeant Donoghue was honoured to be adjudged as the Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Wing Sportsman of the year for the second year running and he received his trophy at the Wing Review at RAF Wyton.
Jackson is now back in Missouri USA and as a senior NCO in his High School JROTC he hopes to join the US Air Force, following in his fathers footsteps.
