UM: Helicopters

The Detroit Free Press reports on a back story regarding the military helicopters that have been flying around Michigan Stadium in preparation for Saturday’s commencement with President Obama – there’s a connection to UM basketball coach John Beilein: “His nephew, Capt. Joseph Ludick, is with Marine Helicopter Squadron One, the presidential helicopter squadron. There are a number of helicopters that travel with the president — carrying the accompanying Secret Service, etc. — so Ludick doesn’t know which he’ll be on – or at least hasn’t told Beilein. They will be doing training exercises in Ann Arbor today and Friday to prepare for Saturday’s event.” [Source]
