With all of this down time, we are making new exhibits and improving on others. We are in need of mannequins (full or partial), book cases and black or brown men's and women's shoes. Also any pre-Vietnam uniforms or uniform parts would be helpful. If you have any of these items and would like to donate or loan them to us, please call Paul at (707) 301-0905. Thank you!
The Center for Freedom and Flight has lost a good friend. Kelly Kreeger was apparently killed Sunday when two planes collided. Our condolences go out to her friends and family.
