On November 16th, 2021 the Aurora Amateur Radio Group reached an incredible milestone when we welcomed our 1,000th examinee into a remote session.  This milestone was accomplished by the help of our incredible Volunteer Examiners.  Our VE team that participated in today's milestone were the following:

**  Harry Bradley, KD9RXU
**  Frank Girello, W3UF
**  Gary Hogsten, AB4GH
**  Brandin Hess, WB1BR
**  Phillip Lewis, K3TCD
**  Amy Peterson, KI5OOO
**  Irene Reed, KN4ZHL
**  Matt Reed, WT4FU
**  Dann St-Pierre, KU7R
**  Jackson Steinbrecher, KE8SRZ
**  Elijah West, N5EEW

This milestone represents a lot for our group.  It is a clear representation of the hard work we have done collectively since starting our service in December 2020.  It is a representation of the dedication, motivation and selfless service that has come from everyone who serves with us.  Getting here has been a tough road, but we made it!  A greater thought is we have accomplished this, with a small group, in less than a year!  As we think about the 1,000 examinees who have come to see us, we are proud to have played a role in offering the "Aurora Touch" to each and every one of them.  I want to personally thank the Volunteer Examiners who were present for this milestone and for those who have helped us get here.  This could not have been done without your hard work and dedication, and for that, thank you for your service!
