Greetings Davis Squadron,

We will soon be reporting results from our Pete Freeman Scholarship session. Board members, under the guidance of the XO, and support from our Treasurer, Cols Kraft, Gillan, and Franklin, and MGySgt McCutcheon have been hitting it hard all summer, reviewing over twenty applicant submissions.

We anticipate that announcement in early September. Please stand by.

In July, I disclosed our financial status to our Board of Directors and to MCAA National. BLUF: our Davis Squadron remains quite healthy and solvent, thanks to our generous member and corporate sponsors. I believe we have been good stewards of our sponsors and members remitted donations and administration fees. We intend to continue that, while seeking new ways to contribute to the benefit of our members, our Aviation Logistics Community of Interest, and mission of the Marine Corps Aviation Association.

We are in the planning phases for our 2023 reunion in Beaufort, SC. We have “boots on the ground” reconnoitering accommodations, a banquet venue, and activities for our event. We have yet to set a date, but it will be in the March-April timeframe. We will have more details in our October AVLOG Sentinel newsletter.

Finally, at the request of the National Commander, LtGen (ret) Conant, we were asked to take custody of a set of evening dress that belonged to the late LtCol (ret) Lee Holloway. His wife, Becky, asked that we do an appropriate tribute to Lee with it. We took the matter to the Board and our officers for ideas and resolution. As such, in late September, we will be doing a dedication to Lee at the Hickory Aviation Museum in Hickory, NC. His fully decorated evening dress will be displayed in a casement which is currently under construction. It is anticipated that the National Commander will be in attendance.

Nuff said! Our efforts going forward are squarely focused on completing our Freemen Scholarship Program awards and piecing together the 2023 Davis Squadron reunion. Thank you to our new slate of officers who hit the ground running and continue to do great things for our community. Again, I thank each one of you. Remember, this is your organization. We need the full team to maintain our tremendous momentum.

SF, Klutch
