Currently, there are two open chapter Officer positions- Vice President and Secretary. The Chapter has been very successful over the last 13 years because of those before us who stepped up and took leadership roles. We are the beneficiaries of their efforts and dedication. Please consider these positions as opportunities to serve and to keep our Chapter strong. We are the voice in Missouri for all those who flew during the Vietnam war. Let me know if you might consider one of them and we can talk about each position.  520-820-7339


The subject of the bios found in the TAPS section of the Aviator magazine was discussed at the November meeting. Copies of a Veteran Biographical Data Form were distributed to each table. The form was developed by the Rocky Mountain Chapter in Colorado as a way of gathering information about our military experiences and awards. This information will assist our chapter, families and the Aviator publishing staff to prepare appropriate bios when needed. The attached form will be added to our website at for easy access. The completed forms may be sent to me at or by snail mail at 565 E. Katella Circle, Nixa, MO 65714. Forms will remain confidential and used only for preparation of a public announcement of the passing of a veteran.


Connie and I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas. We hope all is well with each of you and look forward to seeing you at a meeting next year.
