UPDATE 23 SEPT 2021
Virginia Beach Dedication
Thanks to all who attended the Dedication Ceremony on 16 SEPT 2021, especially to our guest speaker ADM Chris ‘Lung’ Aquilino whose fantastic remarks were right on point and brought back many fond memories. It was a beautiful day filled with great friends, old squadron mates and reverent memories of those gone West.
Here’s a link to full video of the ceremony….

West Coast News
Fundraising continues as the new Board of Directors and other volunteers work on identifying the best West Coast site for the latest monument honoring the thousands of personnel involved in the design, operation, and maintenance of the Tomcat, and memorializing those F-14 aviators who lost their lives serving our country.
The final Tomcat monument destined for San Diego has been slightly re-designed in order to accommodate 20 more donor names per panel. Fully subscribing all the available donor names will completely fund this final install. If you live on the West Coast and worry that you’ll never see the fruits of your donation, please consider donating now! Remember that if you donated for the Virginia Beach monument you are included on the Pensacola and San Diego monuments as well!
Pensacola Dedication Ceremony
The Pensacola Monument Dedication at the National Naval Aviation Museum was a great success.
The Monument Board is especially grateful to CAPT Sterling Gilliam, USN (Ret), Museum Director, and Mr. Hill Goodspeed, Historian NNAM, for their support and participation.
We now focus on the San Diego Monument effort. Stay tuned!
