Candorful shared a great event with corporate partners to commemorate Veterans Day 2021.
Our inaugural Fireside chat was focused on fun and the excitement of a military career in the air. We explored the real experience of a TOPGUN pilot vs that of a the Hollywood version – TopGun (1986) and Maverick (2022). Commander Guy Snodgrass, TOPGUN Pilot and Instructor (retired), did a great job bringing the audience right into what it’s really like; the excitement AND the reality. The event included trailers from the soon to be released movie, Maverick, as well as footage from exhilarating REAL TopGun missions. It was a fun focused event with over 250 people in attendance and a myriad of trivia games and prizes honoring Veterans Day.
