The Order of Daedalians
honors all World War I aviators who were commissioned as officers and rated as
military pilots no later than the Armistice on November 11, 1918. It
perpetuates their names as the first to fly our country's airplanes in time of
war. The order's membership of commissioned, warrant, and flight officer
military pilots and WASPs, with its worldwide network and its comprehensive
awards program, supports the military services and other aerospace activities.
The awards and scholarship programs
of the order and foundation encourage patriotism, integrity, and good character
in our nation's youth; military careers as commissioned pilots; safety of
flight, and excellence in the performance of military duties.
It will be a busy summer for
Arnold, who will be attending the United States Naval Academy Summer Seminar in
June. He attended the STEM summer
program at the academy in 2013 following his freshman year.
