Don E Davis Squadron

Marine Corps Aviation Association

A Service-Oriented Fraternity of Marine Corps Aviation Logisticians


Dear Friends,

Laura, Kevin, the Squadron Officers and BoD, thank you for your patience and understanding! We will all miss being together but our health is of utmost importance! I believe this crisis will end soon and we can all go about our daily lives and next year meet and be joyous!

That being said. Please ensure you cancel your hotel reservations 48 before. To make it easy, if you still intend on staying because you were planning to visit anyway then email the Hotel Manager, Stephanie Mora: and let her know you are not canceling.

If you are canceling you can go to the link to “modify” your reservation from your confirmation email and click to “Cancel”. Or you can call. Or Stephanie is going to Cancel the whole block by Tuesday of next week.

All registration money will be reimbursed within the next few days unless otherwise indicated by you. All registration fees that are donated will go to the Pete Freeman Scholarship Fund so that we can once again support the education of our family members. Part of our funding for them is through our reunion auction and drink donations not to mention the generosity of our members and sponsors!! The only financial loss we will encounter is the hotel deposit of $1000. Once all is settled a full financial report can be provided.

We have communicated with all stakeholder parties (CNATT, vendors, transportation and accommodation hosts and venues) and they understand and are supportive of our cancellation decision.

Our many sponsors have been contacted and remain steadfast in their sponsorships they’ve provided this year.  They will receive special advertising consideration for our soon-forthcoming newsletter, at future awardee presentation ceremonies and through our social media groups.

Planned award presentations will be conducted by Davis Squadron officers at a future occasion under separate correspondence.

We wish all of you safe travels if you choose, stay healthy and we look forward to seeing ALL of you next year!!

Semper Fidelis

– After careful deliberation, the Don E Davis Squadron has decided to cancel the 2020 Reunion. We believe that the health and welfare of our squadron members as well as our active-duty Marines is too important to risk. We regret any inconvenience that this has caused. Further guidance is forthcoming.

Members and friends of the MCAA Don Davis Squadron,

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 19th – 22nd in Jacksonville, NC at the Hilton Garden Inn and Marine Corps Air Station New River is sure to be a momentous event that rivals our Pensacola gig last year. Thanks to the tireless efforts of Gale Rodgers, Rob McCutcheon and LtCol Bill Slack (our host), it will include many of the traditions that our most seasoned members are accustom, with additions that involve the Assistant Deputy Commandant for Aviation as our Guest of Honor; our full participation stake with HQMC ASL, MALS-26 & 29 and the leadership participation of the Center for Naval Aviation & Technical Training (CNATT).

As with the past two reunions, we will be having a live and silent auction of items our members donate. So PLEASE consider donating a nice item for the auction. All proceeds will go to the Pete Freeman Scholarship Fund!

Please join us in Jacksonville this coming March for an agenda packed with rich Marine tradition; the 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 Jacksonville, NC. Be there and be part of it. For more information go to and on Facebook at MCAA Don Davis Squadron under “Community.”

To email with questions or concerns to Gale Rodgers: Or call Gale at: 906-439-5130 (h), 229-296-5420 (c).
