We have finished our first year in existence as a VHPA Chapter in the great state of ALASKA! By recognizing the pilots of Viet Nam and expanding our chapter to other Military and Alaskan pilots and crews we will work in conjunction with Our National VHPA. We are dedicated to the objectives of the VHPA and to the fulfillment of purpose: There is Pride in knowing WE FLEW!
If you were not at the Reunion this year ....you missed out! It was a BLAST!!! I can't believe that I waited, with all the usual excuses, for so many years. It was well organized, lots of things to do and see, good food and lot and lots of good friends that I haven't seen for a long long time! Next year the Reunion will get out of the July 4th routine and it will be in Washington DC THE END OF AUGUST. There goes that excuse!
We also want to welcome our newest members ...... Welcome Clifford D "Sting" Brunsting
Cliff few with many of us in Alaska after coming home from his tour and although he lives and flies in Arizona, we welcome him to our Chapter.
Our Veterans Museum Vietnam display is very nice, we invite all to go by and check it out! They could also use some volunteer help a couple of hours each month at the museum, so think about it!
Membership dues for 2014 will be via a donation from our members. No set amount, what ever your feel you can give to help us stay strong.
Please remit by the end of February so we can keep our records current.
Our next Get Together will be the middle of August with exact date and place to be announced ...stay tuned!
