Congressman Steve Womack, R-Ark., filed a House resolution on Nov. 30 — H.Res.638 — with all of the state’s delegation on board. We are very grateful and pleased.
This follows the Senate bill that was introduced by Arkansas Republican Sen. John Boozman and co-sponsored by fellow Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton this summer.
Now, to the really hard part — we desperately need for all folks, from all states, to contact their congressional representatives and ask them to support S.Res.186 (may be changed to S.Bill.186) and H.Res.638. Title is: National Aviation Cadet Museum of the United States.
Most people don’t realize that we are the boys, turned into men, by this great program that built the air arm of this nation from 1917 until the end of the 20th century. We had cadets in all services, and most everyone in our nation has at least one in their family line.
We need to get this accomplished now, as we are all getting on in years and would like to be alive to see it happen. I am 77 and considered a “kid” compared to the rest of the surviving men.
We all thank you so much for your help in honoring these great men. For more information please go to our web site, aviationcadet.org/home.aspx
