Meeting Notes from September 2012

Meeting Notes from February 21, 2009

On Saturday, September 15th we had a very pleasant and educational meeting and lunch at the Stonehenge Country Club in Richmond.  Most attendees made comments about their association with the 8th Air Force or the armed forces.  Abe Firestone, with the able assistance of Anne Royster showed the film “Winning Your Wings” starring Jimmy Stewart.  This film was made in 1942 and Abe said it influenced him to join the Aviation Cadets.  I expect it had a similar effect on many a young man at that time in our history.
