IMPORTANT NOTICE: APRIL 13TH
During the past nine years, the concept, request for, organization, funding, delivery, restoration, painting and dedication of an A-3 Skywarrior at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island was realized. Thank you to all that made the dream a success. Now it is time to chart new territory and look ahead to the future of the A-3 Skywarrior Whidbey Memorial Foundation. You, the membership, define the education based non-profit foundation and your input is desired to determine the future, identify the leadership, and to respond to Naval Air Station Whidbey Island tasking with regard to complying with the National Naval Aviation Museum directives as applies to names on display aircraft.
On Friday, April 13, 2018 at 1 pm, the A-3 Skywarrior Whidbey Memorial Foundation will conduct a general membership meeting in the Mount Baker Room at the CPO Club on Ault Field Road, Oak Harbor, WA. Our organization's future will be determined, nominations and elections will be conducted, and a response to Naval Air Station Whidbey Island with consensus for "no names" or "historical names" on the aircraft will be worked out.
