President's Corner - March 2012


Plan now to attend our annual Spring Social on March 31, 2012! All details are contained in this issue of the Newsletter and we're looking forward to a very special evening of recognizing key people and honoring our AFISRA deployed personnel. Please post or e-mail your intent to attend to either Bob Baert or me, so we can appropriately plan for this event. We look forward to setting another new attendance record this year!

Maj General Bob Otto gave an incredibly informative interview in the most recent edition of Tactical ISR Technology. For those of us who aren't directly involved in AFISRA day-to-day activities, General Otto's words will bring you up to date on the incredible work being conducted by our active duty contingent, and I strongly suggest you check out his remarks online at issue-5-december/5062-qaa-maj-gen-robert-otto.html. (See pp 12-13 of the March 2012 Remain in Touch.)

After serving in a variety of FTVA positions for over a decade (including 9 years as the Hall of Honor Chairman), Bob Sherwood submitted his "retirement papers". Bob is an integral part of the Association, and has directed the Hall of Honor program with unparalleled integrity. He is directly responsible for much FTVA growth and success, and will be missed tremendously. The Board of Directors subsequently named Bob as "Hall of Honor Director Emeritus" to show our profound appreciation for his numerous contributions. We're pleased to name CMSgt-Ret A.J. Harrison as Bob's successor, and look forward to continued success with the Hall of Honor Program.

Lastly, I'd like to thank Rass and Wayne for their work with our Newsletter over the past two years. They work hard to ensure each post, e-mail, and submitted correspondence are reviewed and included, yet manage to edit, publish, and disseminate the document on time, every time. Thanks again for your input and participation – it enables all of us to

Remain In Touch.
