He's been winged!

After the ceremony, there was more ritual.  During the reception, each new pilot claimed a mug inscribed with his/her name and his number in the tally of pilot trained at Whiting Field in Pensacola FL.  
Then with mugs in hand, there was a ritual toast.
And then, there was a yet another encouraging speaker.
Did I mention that this was an event rich in ritual?
