Chapter Latest News
Greetings from the Pacific Northwest
Chapter elections were held and the new President is Dewey Green from the 4th Airlift Squadron, Vice President is Harold Edvalds and the final position of Secretary/Treasurer is Toby McKnight from the 4th Airlift Squadron. Thanks to outgoing officers, President was Harold Simpson from the 7th Airlift Squadron, Vice President Victor Fredlund and Secretary/Treasurer was Walter Baade.
CMSgt Ron Campeau Jr from the 313th Airlift Squadron presided over a brick laying ceremony in “Loadmaster Plaza” at McChord’s Memorial Grove. Del Foster, Don Deshon and Jerry Loundberry all had bricks placed to remember the service these three brought to the 313th Airlift Squadron and team McChord.
Many chapter members were at the 4th Airlift Squadron’s 75th Anniversary Celebration. The chapter set up a table with some information and the chapter banner served as the backdrop. It was great to see many old friends.
The chapter also assisted at the Air Expo by provided loadmasters to man the C-124 and C-141B. The annual picnic is set for 24 July at Overlook Park by the C-141B.
Reminder for those in the area, we hold our monthly meetings at the golf course the second Saturday of the month with breakfast 0900-1000 and the meeting from 1000-1100.
Safe travels and we hope to see you in San Antonio at the Gathering of Loads.
