Wine & Lecture: Frank Hamrick, Naval Aviator and Author
At CHA's next "Wine & Lecture" event, noted naval aviator and author Frank Hamrick will join us for a talk about the stories that filled his colorful life and military career while serving in the U.S. Navy.
Frank flew a wide variety of aircrafts in the 1950s and 60s, and his book, Just Call Me Frank!: Memories of a Navy Jet Pilot, is a plain-spoken, forthright, and historical telling of the leading edge of military aviation of the era.
Frank operated from almost all of the Navy’s aircraft carriers of the era and flew over a hundred combat missions in Vietnam, flying the unique RA-5C Vigilante. With humor and vivid intensity, he recalls the life of a jet pilot flying for over half a century and the hard lessons learned.
Copies of the book will be on sale and available for signing by the author.
CHA’s Wine & Lecture events are free to the public; wine is available at $5 per glass. No RSVP required, but seating is first-come, first-served.
