Tag: Pilot for a Day program

    Capt. Tennyson William Hunter, “Wizard,” the Nevada Air National Guard’s first-ever Pilot for a Day in 2019, died Monday, Feb. 22, after a lifetime battle with Kabuki Syndrome. He was 15.  Hunter, or as Nevada Air Guardsmen called him Wizard — a call sign he acquired in his whirlwind one day of service and retirement — touched the hearts of every single High Roller on the base as Pilot for a Day, an Air Force-wide program that provides chronically-ill children a chance to enter Air Force life. With his jovial spirit and can-do attitude, he made quite the impact at the Nevada Air National Guard Base in Reno, Dec. 16, 2019.
