Retired Army Pilot Ali Feezor

We gathered on the serene Bonita Beach Park to film with Alisha Feezor, a retired Army helicopter pilot. As a little girl, Ali dreamed of flying. The U.S. Army provided a way to make this dream a reality.

Today, Ali is the general manager of the Pelican Isle Yacht Club. She shared with us why she chose the route of ROTC at Wake Forest University, and spoke about the kind of work she did as the pilot of an OH-58D Kiowa Warrior while deployed in Iraq.

A big thank you to the Trianon Hotel at Bonita Bay for hosting us for our week of filming. Your accommodations were wonderful. And as always, we are grateful to our Executive Producer Bob Gillette for helping to organize this production in Bonita Springs.
