Many of you know about the efforts of Ed Rusinek and Nolan Leatherman with regard to funding a memorial bench at Wright-Patterson. This is a chance to memorialize all of the divisions at an honored location that will not be threatened by the wrecking ball.
14 AUG 2013 Update - Word has reached us that the NAA Memorial Bench at the Air Force Museum in Dayton HAS BEEN OFFICIALLY DEDICATED in the museum's Memorial Park. We will post any other photos here if they become available. Look for your September, 2013 issue of the Bulletin for additional pictures. Now, work will turn to a similar effort for the Navy at Pensacola.
