The Helicopter War Museum schedule has been busy this year. See the after action report on the Longmont event held on Veterans Day November 11. We can always use more volunteer docents, so feel free to jump in and share your knowledge and experiences with the folks visiting the Museum. On that same note we will open discussion on how to reach out to the other members that do not frequent us as often.
At the October RMCVHPA meeting a question arose as to who is eligible and how to apply for the Honor Flight program. If you are interested, the following website has all the information and applications to submit for both Veterans and Guardians.
The ongoing process to place a memorial within Arlington National Cemetery honoring the service and sacrifice of almost 5,000 helicopter pilots and crewmembers from all military branches who lost their lives in the Vietnam War is still going on. This is a battle we are fighting with the Secretary of the Army staff who thinks a small marker placed by a living tree would be appropriate. It is not to the VHPA. Please call your Congressional Office in Washington; Ask for the Military Affairs Staffperson. You are requesting that your representative co-sponsor HR-4298, titled "Helicopter Crew Memorial Act".
