This month’s WMoF Celebrity Speaker Christina Olds is author and granddaughter of Robert Olds and daughter of General Robin Olds. The USAF was created from the military vision and military traditionalism of General Robert Olds. His wisdom and integrity helped preserve American aviation preparedness for the deadly environment to come in World War II. Even facing ostracism and legal threats against his freedom, Olds held fast. Thanks to General Olds, the United States was far better prepared materially and technologically than it would have been had the naysayers prevailed against him. Fortunately, courage won out, and General Robert Olds provided much of that courage. Now, Christina Olds, author of “A Fighter Pilot” will tell us about her grandfather.
