Tonozzi among top

graduates from Officer

Candidate School

Gabriel Tonozzi recently graduated from the Naval Aviation School Command Officer Candidate School in Pensacola, Fla. Tonozzi graduated in the top 10 percent of his class. He was commissioned June 7 as a ensign in the Navy. Attending his commissioning ceremony in Pensacola were his mother, Annie McIntosh, of Glenwood Springs, and her companion, Jim Steels; Gabriel’s father, Brian Tonozzi; and grandmothers Louise Mooney and Patricia Tonozzi, from the Glenwood Springs area.

Tonozzi, 27, returned home following the ceremony to collect some of his belongings, and arrived during the Coal Seam Fire. He returned to Pensacola and immediately began pre-flight indoctrination training. He will be among the first few pilots to fly the new T-6A Texan II trainers that fly up to speeds of 320 mph.

Tonozzi is a native of Glenwood Springs and a 1993 graduate of Glenwood Springs High School. He earned a bachelor’s degree in aviation technology from Metropolitan State College of Denver, and his pilot’s and ground instructor’s licenses in 2001. His passion for flying comes, in part, from two local uncles, Steve Tonozzi and Clem Kopf, both Glenwood Springs pilots.
