 NEWSLETTER #10 -- March 2002



Andrew Martinez, son of Conrado Martinez, Assistant Radio Operator, Gunner on the Ross/Handorf Crew (57) of the 530th Squadron, has generously offered to provide an authentic A-2 jacket for us to chance-off at the Salt Lake City Reunion. He will decorate the jacket to the winner's specification. Attendees at the last Tucson Reunoin may remember Conrado and Andrew Martinez there. Andrew had decorated the superb jacket worn by Conrado at that reunion. This jacket will be similarly decorated but customized to the winner's wishes. Chances will be sold at registration and throughout our reunion. The winner will be picked at the Saturday evening banquet.

Funds derived from the raffle of the jacket will be devoted to our historical research project. Andrew wishes no remuneration for himself for this project. We want to thank Andrew most wholeheartedly for his thoughtfulness and generosity in establishing this project.
