Don Davis Squadron/ALM Colleagues, Here we are again, in our final push and I’m leading it through our reunion registration deadline. As a gentle reminder, our MCAA Don E. Davis Squadron reunion is fast approaching. Our gathering this March 21st -24th in Pensacola at the Pensacola Grand is sure to be a momentous event that rivals our Myrtle Beach gig last year. Thanks to the tireless efforts of Wayne Miller and Sean Hennessy, it will include many of the traditions that our most seasoned members are accustom, with additions that involve the Deputy Commandant for Aviation, LtGen Steve Rudder as our Guest of Honor; our full participation stake with HQMC ASL and the leadership participation of the Marine Aviation Training Group Squadron. We’ll recognize those outstanding aviation logisticians from MATSG-23 who are advancing our efforts, and keeping the Don Davis Squadron in a place of high regard. We’ll also recognize some of our most steadfast members who have demonstrated sustained commitment and have contributed immeasurably to the squadron itself.
 
Please join us in Pensacola this coming March for an agenda packed with rich Marine tradition; the Aviation recognition of our recent Pete Freeman Scholarship recipients and acknowledgment of aviation logisticians past and present, as well as many lively professional and social interactions.
 
I look forward to seeing you in Pensacola. Be there and be part of it.
 
“The Plug”
 
Members and friends of the MCAA Don Davis Squadron, I can’t begin to thank each of you for your innumerable contributions to our great Davis Squadron. This year we provided scholarship awards to 17 aspiring students from our own membership family. We plan to expand that next year by awarding funds to member applicants seeking aviation logistics specialized license certifications. Additionally, we are currently working with ASL to provide logistics publications to our upstart Warrant Officer class. Thanks to you, the Davis Squadron is making a difference across our Community of Interest.
 
So, it’s that time again, not only are we pursuing donations to sustain our Freeman Scholarship and Annual Reunion Programs, but we are seeking items and memorabilia for our Pensacola reunion raffle and silent auction. Last year our reunion raffle and silent auction netted us over $2400, most of which went to our scholarship program.
 
Here are the ways you can make a donation:
— Make a donation online
— Make a material item pledge by calling us at (828) 443-1560 or (906) 439-5130
— Send a check to the Donald E. Davis Squadron, P.O. Box 22 Chatham, MI 49816
— Bring raffle and silent auction items to the reunion in Pensacola
 
Please consider a donation to our efforts.
 
The Reunion is fast approaching. A lot of people have been working very hard on this to put together a reunion to rival the best we’ve ever had. We are working on finalizing a number of items. Watch this web site and our Facebook page for registration information. See you in Pensacola in March!
