WASHINGTON – This week, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) visited with Jacob Helm of Norcatur, Kan., and his fiancée Michelle Peschel of Axtell, Kan. Helm was nominated by Sen. Moran for the United States Air Force Academy in 2010 and recently graduated. He will begin Air Force pilot’s training in the coming months.
“I proudly nominated Jacob to the United States Air Force Academy in December 2010, and wish him the best as he heads to Air Force pilot’s training.” Sen. Moran said. “Conversations with young Kansans like Jacob and Michelle give me hope for our state’s next generation.”
Jacob’s father, Mike, is also serving our nation through his role as American Legion National Commander.
