As a member of the Society of Illustrators, San Francisco in '86, I was eligible
to participate in the Air Force Art Program.
I, with members of the Chicago and Los Angeles Societies,
were flown to Guam in December of '86 to cover the Christmas Drop.
Generally, members take turns going on these trip, but the next month rolled around with
a trip to Alaska, and nobody except me was willing to go to Alaska in January.
