Aviation Speaker Series Event: Prescott's Own Lt. Ernest A. Love

Mr. Alan Roesler author of An American Aviator in France presents a discussion about Prescott’s own Lt Ernest A. Love. Ernest graduated from Prescott High School having distinguished himself in both academics and athletics including as an all-state football player. He then attended Stanford University, joined their Army ROTC program, and eventually found himself in the skies over France fighting in this new form of warfare that was rapidly transforming how wars would be fought in the future. Lt. Love was fully engaged in aerial combat alongside the famous aviator names that came out of WWI, and again distinguished himself as he had done throughout his life, before meeting his death in a grueling aerial dual against one of the highest scoring German aces of the war. Mr. Roesler has discovered new information about the life and death of Lt. Love since writing his book, and will be presenting this new detail. He will also have books available for sale.
