Pilots In Command

Did you know? Title 10 of US code states that only pilots can command flying units—prior to 1976.  In 1976 the National Reserve Officers Association held the annual meeting in Atlanta, Ga.  ROA  chapter one of Charleston, S,C. went to the convention with a resolution to change the U,S. law to read “pilots/navigators could command flying units.  The resoluton was adopted by the convention.  We got congressional support and the law was changed to allow navigators to command flying units. I commanded a flying squadron, group, wing and served on # A.F.staff as Director of Operations.   Bobby L. Hammond (Connally Class: 59-10)
