Happy 73rd Anniversary to AFTAC!
16 September 1947
Fellow Alumni, Friends and Families,
I sincerely hope you all are doing well and staying safe.
We took a poll of our core group and based on the responses we have cancelled our remaining two scheduled events: The 19 September Breakfast and the 21 November Dinner.
For our traditional February Breakfast we will need to evaluate the situation after the first of the year (2021).
Thank you all for your support to our organization & best wishes,
The Air Force Technical Applications Center (AFTAC) Memorial is a project managed by the AFTAC Memorial Corporation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The mission of the organization is to design, construct and maintain a memorial on the AFTAC HQ campus located at Patrick AFB, FL. This memorial will be dedicated to all those who lost their lives in service of the AFTAC mission since its inception in 1947, and will provide a solemn location to honor and remember these patriots.
We received positive feedback from our Colorado Alumni members to purchase a Brick to support the AFTAC Memorial. With the assistance of a local business, on 5/16/20 we purchased an 8" X 8" Brick with the following:
To remember those
Who gave their life
For our Freedom
LRD & AFTAC
LEST WE FORGET
After careful consideration with the Colorado Chapter Staff - considering the risk of exposure to COVID 19, we decided to cancel our plans for a June picnic this year.
We have reservations at the Aurora Hills Tin Cup for our annual September Breakfast and Traditional November Fall/Veterans Day Dinner. The dates are 19 September 2020 and 21 November 2020, respectively.
Welcome to our newest Colorado Alumni member!
A hearty welcome to Lt. John and Tara Strickland of Colorado Springs!
