I enjoy getting out there and talking about the Air Force," said Major Colton who has spoken to high school students, service clubs and women's groups over the past year. Most recently, she delivered the opening address at the Canadian Women in Aviation conference in Edmonton.
"It's a way to give back. It's also gratifying ... and the feedback is always positive."
"While still in its early stages, the Air Force Speakers Bureau is enjoying tremendous success, thanks to people like Major Colton who are getting out there, proudly and passionately telling the Air Force story," said LGen Watt, adding he plans to recognize other deserving speakers at other wings across the country in the coming months.
