With Flying Colors follows Tom Fitzgerald's tumultuous quest to become a Marine Corps pilot during the 1950's. In his quest for his wings of gold he confronts self-doubt, terror in the cockpit, uproarious rites of passage, and a fellow cadet's determination to humiliate him into dropping from the program.

About the Author:

Colonel R. L. Upchurch was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1934. After attending Central Michigan College for two years, he reported to Pensacola, Florida as a Naval Aviation Cadet (NavCad). In 1955 he earned his gold wings and commission as a Second Lieutenant in the US Marine Corps, flying A1 Skyraider dive-bombers in the US and Western Pacific. He left active duty in 1958. Following a short teaching career, he returned to active duty and flew jet attack aircraft in Vietnam and the US, commanding at the squadron and group level. Retiring in 1985, he developed and managed a county aviation program in Virginia. In 1994 he retired again and now resides in Fairhope, Alabama with his wife, Providence, and is a Volunteer Tour Guide at the National Museum of Naval aviation in Pensacola, Florida. Colonel Upchurch has written numerous magazine articles regarding aviation education and military history. With Flying Colors is his first novel.
