Excuse Me While I Kiss The Sky: Wounded Warrior Charles “Dozer” Reed Selected as a 2016 AOPA Flight Training Scholarship Recipient (Video)

Charles “Dozer” Reed, 43, of Keithville, Louisiana, is the recipient of a Sarah Wilson Flight Training Scholarship. He loves aviation history, and excelled at aerospace science in high school. A disabled veteran who was injured in an accident in a convoy heading to Iraq in 2005, Reed underwent six operations for damage to the spinal cord, and worked long and hard to regain medical certification, resulting in his resuming his flight training this year. Reed volunteers as a mentor with the Wounded Warrior Project, has been an advocate for veterans on state legislative issues, and would like to put a pilot’s certificate to use some day to help wounded veterans see their families. “There is no greater feeling than that of soaring above the clouds. It is where I belong,” he said. Check out the video of Reed being surprised with the news of winning the scholarship. (Courtesy of AOPA)
