Support the Tomcat Monument!

NOTAM 23 MAR 2020

Dear Tomcat Monument Donors and Supporters:

It is with deep regret that we, the Board of Directors of the F-14 Tomcat Monument Association, reluctantly announce that the Dedication Ceremony scheduled for 13 May 2020 has been postponed due to the uncertainty of the current national situation. We know that this decision is disappointing and inconvenient for all who had planned to attend, but please understand that our decision was not made lightly and was, we believe, in the best interest of our whole community. This current action is a postponement and not a cancellation, and we are looking at conducting the dedication ceremony in the Fall. Over the next few months please check back here periodically for amplifying announcements.

Forever, Baby!

RADM Bad Fred Lewis, USN (Ret)

President and Chairman, F-14 Tomcat Monument Association
