I want to ask you if it is permissible to make a post on the WW-I forum about the Royal Flying Corps memorial service I am involved with here in Fort Worth? About 1200 pilots earned their wings here under the tutelage of RFC instructors. 38 RFC were killed here in accidents or sickness, and 12 are buried here in an official British Commonwealth War Grave Commission Cemetery, as well as one Canadian defendant child. 1978 was the last service involving the local "WW-1 Flyers Club." I revived the service in 1986, regrettably, after the last actual WW-1 vets had passed, and we have continued these services since, usually every two years.
On May 27th, Memorial Day, we will have Canadian Lt. Gen. J.A.J. Parent, OMM, CD, deputy C in C of NORAD, here. I think there is a small chance the British Air Attaché, Air Commodore McCann, may come; fallback for that is the RN liaison LT here in the F-35 program.
Due to the Sequester, no F-16s, but we will have a 3 or 4 Stearman fly by, weather permitting.
