Major Larry Googins, USAF (Ret) – Named Member

Major (Ret) Googins supports and presents 3 local high school cadets in the Pittsburgh, PA area the JROTC Daedalian Achievement Award.

If there is no local chapter, JROTC Instructors must purchase the Daedalian Achievement Medal themselves. Since the closest Daedalian Chapter is at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, he has presented the certificates and medals in past years and has been asked to do so again in 2017:

Army JROTC Ball  Beaver Area High School

Air Force JROTC Ball – Pine-Richland High School

Marine JROTC Ball- Ambridge Area High School


Recently, Major Googins again represented the Daedalians at Carnegie Mellon University NROTC Unit as Ensign Jacob Klein was presented with a $2,500 Daedalian Naval Reserve Officers Training Program Scholarship for outstanding performance as a military aviator candidate.


Thank you, Major Googins for your assistance and for continuing the objectives of the Order of Daedalians and the Daedalian Foundation.
