Here is the next AMCA show info

Hello AMCA Members, vendors and patrons. Many of you have asked if we were going to reschedule the January Show. That answer is YES!! We were able to get April 20th & 21st at the Jaycees Building on Airport Rd..the same location! All we need is YOU! While we are moving at “light-Speed” to get ready, I’d like to request that your Table Reservation $$, and/or your membership renewal $$, precede your arrival. That way we can reduce the processing times, and predict our advertising capability in advance. Given the “narrower-than-usual” window of opportunity to get this ALL done we really need your help get the word out, beyond the membership and to your friends and colleagues. You can follow us on Facebook or visit our website www.almilitarycollectors.org for more information.

Great American goes home

America lost another hero today Theodore " Dutch" Van Kirk, the navigator of the B-29 Enola Gay. Dutch was a friend of the museum and several of our staff shared some great fellowship with him over the past few years. There is a book published about his life called My True Course. Wings level and God speed, you will be missed by everyone who knew you. America salutes you for your service.

Stolen Valor

As we open our doors today let us focus on the Defenders of our great Nation and their families who pay the cost of freedom with individual sacrifice and with honor to each other "these Band of Brothers"

The last seven minutes of "Band Of Brothers", the veteran interview's. Well worth the watch for Veterans Day.

"From this day, to the ending of the world, we in it shall be remembered. We few, We lucky few, we band of brothers. For he who today sheds his blood with me, shall be my brother."
