A Conversation with Heroes: Opening General Session and Military Schedules Announcement

Tuesday, December 10th 2019 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Concorde Ballroom


To kick off the 2019 ICAS Convention on the morning of Tuesday, December 10, former Good Morning, America host David Hartman will moderate a discussion with three World War II veterans: Colonel Charles McGee (USAF, retired), Lieutenant Colonel Bob Vaucher (USAF, retired) and Karnig Thomasian, a former staff sergeant, B-29 gunner and POW.

Although best known as the original male co-host of ABC’s morning news show for more than a decade, Hartman is highly regarded as one of the most talented interviewers in the history of television. During our opening general session, David will use those skills to uncover the stories of three men who – 75 years ago – were risking their lives to defend our country and safeguard democracy. From the South Pacific to the skies over Europe, their stories will inform and inspire you.

Following the panel discussion, the 2021 schedules for the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds and the 2020 schedules for the Snowbirds, CF-18, Harrier, Osprey, F-16, A-10, F-22 and F-35 demo teams will be announced.
