Speaker Highlights:
Teresa Russell introduced her niece, Mollie Sebald: Lieutenant Junior Grade Navy F-18 Pilot. 
Mollie grew up in Ohio and graduated from Gannon University as a Mechanical Engineer. She is a 4 year letter winner/ NCAA tournement basketball player. 
Mollie loves to travel and enjoys a team atmosphere so the U.S. Navy seemed an exciting option. 
Mollie got selected to Officer Canidate School (OCS) which she describes as an officer form of boot camp. This is a 12 week training program with Navy and Marine Drill Instructors. 
The first plane Mollie, and all, learn to fly is the T6. It is a single engine Prop aircraft that has 2000HP. Her next plane was the T45, another single engine. This is the Navy jet trainer. She did 8 months of strike fighter aviation which helped her earn the Wings of Gold in Penscola. She finished top in her class here. 
Mollie then chose to go to Virginia Beach and is now part of the Super Hornets.
Mollie flies in the back seat of the aircraft as a weapon systems operator. She compared it to Goose from Top Gun and said the transition from a single engine to a double engine was quite a change. Once you have earned your wings you spend a year training and learning to fly your particular aircraft. 
There are currently 3 females in her squadron.
Thank you for your service, Mollie!
