We normally have our chapter meetings on the 2nd Sunday of the Month. This year Easter falls on the 2nd Sunday. I’m sure everyone would prefer spending the day with family.
With that in mind the chapter meeting will be moved to the 3rd Sunday, April 15th.
UPDATE: We will not have a regular chapter meeting this month.
Air Force historian Dr. Daniel L. Haulman will present “The Tuskegee Airmen: Myths and Realities” at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 31 at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. Haulman’s lecture coincides with this month’s release of Red Tails, a movie about the Tuskegee Airmen. Admission and parking are FREE
