Come and Help us Honor World War II Veterans

Mary Ann Carnegie from Gold Coast Quilt Guild will be our guest speaker for our monthly dinner meeting on August 6th. She will speak on "The Quilts of Valor Program" that the Guild has been involved with since 2011.

Quilts of Valor is a national, non-profit foundation located in Washington, D.C. The main objective is to cover all service-members and veterans touched by war, physically or psychologically with patriotic quilts.

These quilts are a tangible way to show the recipients that we thank them for their service, sacrifice and valor.

Nine Quilts of Valor will be presented to members of the museum that served in World War II. A short bio of each recipient's service will be presented along with a quilt.

Come and help us honor these men and show them that we are a grateful nation and we are appreciative of what they have done. Members of the museum being honored include:

Harold Bauer
Richard Blomquist
Karl Haeuser
Charles Harber
Jack McLaughlin
Chuck Miller
Ray Passon
Walter Stacy
Hugh Early
Al Shade.

Captain David Leue (US Navy, Retired) (a guest speaker last year at the EWM, was the recipient of one of the Quilts of Valor, as noted in this YouTube presentation.

USS Missouri

This is a ring cut from one of the USS Missouri's original 16 inch turrets. A very special thanks to Ralf Allison for donating the funds to purchase this great artifact and donated it to the Estrella Warbirds Museum. It was on deck of "The Mighty Mo", the USS Missouri, that the Japanese surrendered at the end of WWII. The USS Missouri saw action during WWII, the Korean Conflict, retired in 1953, then reactivated in 1990 to serve in the Gulf War. It has since re-retired and serves as a Museum Ship in Pearl Harbor.

RF-8G restoration

Some of you may not recognize this aircraft, but if you look closer, it is the RF-8G that has been languishing unrestored as a static display for the past 8-10 years! No, its not a new plane, this is just a sneak preview of what our most excellent volunteer restoration crew has been doing this summer. Stay tuned and stop by to watch completion and relocation of this beautiful artifact! Congratulations to everyone who had anything to do with this restoration over the past many years. For more information, check out the RF-8G page.
