Pat Nugent, our June presenter, joined the Air Force to become a jet engine mechanic. They made him into a parachute rigger instead, but he was able to crosstrain into photography, which he was passionate about. After assignments in Nebraska and Colorado, he was assigned to cover the USAF Thunderbirds. That assignment led to a competitive selection as a photojournalist and resulted in advanced training at Syracuse University.

stationed in Germany, Nugent covered the Rhein-Main Air Base bombing and the return of hostages Father Martin Jenco and David Jacobson, as well as those kidnapped from the Italian cruise ship “Achille Lauro.” Nugent also covered Operations Desert Shield, Desert Storm, Provide Hope, and the Panama invasion. He supervised the “Prototype” Electronic Imaging Center during the early and groundbreaking days that introduced digital photography to the Department of Defense. Nugent retired in 1992 after 23 years of service and continues to participate in military photography workshops and the Military Photographer of the Year program.

Since retirement, he has been the manager for regional and national accounts for the
Eastman Kodak Company, then the Government Account Manager for Nikon. He demonstrates products, evaluates equipment, and conducts training sessions and workshops. He has produced seven photography training programs that have been broadcast over the Air National Guard television network.
His presentation is on
Patrouille de France, the French equivalent of our Blue Angels or Thunderbirds. It should be stellar; be sure to join us.
