 NEWSLETTER #6 -- March 2001



As you know from the previous newsletter, all arrangements have been completed for moving our 380th Memorial Plaque to the 5th Air Force Memorial Wall in the USAF Academy Memorial Cemetery. The Re-dedication Ceremony is now scheduled for June 18, 2001, 10:00 AM, at the USAF Academy Cemetery in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The Ceremony will begin promptly. The Academy will supply an Honor Guard, Music, and the Chaplain. We just supply the audience. The program for the day will include a luncheon and visits to the Academy Chapel and Visitors Center and Exhibit Area.


Mr. Jason Unwin, Secretary of the Pueblo Weisbrod and International B-24 Memorial Museums in Pueblo, Colorado, is researching the loss of B-24 Liberator bombers during WWII. He is seeking any information regarding aircraft lost in training accidents as well as those due to combat.
