Join us as John L. Haigh, former Chief Steward of Air Force One, speaks about his time aboard Air Force One and the privilege it was serving under Presidents Carter, Reagan, and George Bush Sr.
John is from a small coal mining community in western PA and enlisted in the United States Air Force after graduating high school. He volunteered for flying duty and was sent to McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey in 1963. John traveled all over the world transporting troops. In 1973 he volunteered and was accepted into the 89th military airlift wing, special air mission’s organization at Andrews Air force Base in Maryland. His distinguished service also includes a 33 day presidential goodwill trip with the Apollo 17 astronauts (the last men to walk on the moon). On September 1, 1979 he became a permanent member of the Air Force One flight crew.
John wrote a book about his time on Air Force One titled Air Force One, an Honor, Privilege, and Pleasure to Serve. President George H. W. Bush stated “His wonderful book will be a valuable guide for his successors; and for everyone else, it will be a fascinating read.”
John will be selling and signing copies of his book after the presentation.
