A lifetime member, John Cathcart has been involved with MWSA for over 10 years—initially as webmaster, and for the past two seasons as awards director. Before joining MWSA, he served 20 years on active duty in the USAF as pilot and in various staff positions. After retiring from the Air Force at the rank of Lt Col, he flew 737s for American Airlines. While flying for American, he wrote his award-winning debut novel, Delta 7. Now that he’s retired, John would like to continue working with MWSA and ensuring that it remains relevant and useful to veteran writers and their families.
