If you’ve been around San Diego County for a while, you’d be familiar with the DARE Program. DARE was San Diego County Sheriff Department’s Drug Abuse Resistance Education program. DARE volunteer representatives would visit various public school sites and help to inform kids about the dangers of drug abuse.
Yours truly, GMO was and still is a DARE advocate and representative. Here’s a pic from the archives, to prove it. GMO often would take kids for flights in one of his aircraft, at DARE events.
DARE is all but gone now, due to lack of funding for the program. If you’re so inclined, you can read more about the DARE program here.
