At just 16 years old — boy, 16, that’s a great age — TJ is already taking flight lessons to get his pilot’s license. When he heard that hospitals needed more personal protective equipment, he decided to launch his own mission, Operation SOS — which stands for Supplies Over the Skies.
He worked with his school, church, community, to collect medical supplies. With the help of the flight instructor, who probably was a very good person…TJ has flown and delivered more than 10,000 pieces of personal protective equipment. That’s a lot of work, that’s a lot of flying, too. That’s great. And There can be no better preparation for flying military planes.
Kim at the ceremony thanked the president. “I’m beyond humbled to be here today,” he said.
