President's Corner - September 2005

Well, it's that time of the year again—the chance to renew old friendships and memories and to get that important update from the AIA commander on the important challenges facing our command as it moves further into integration with Air Combat Command. Yes, it's the 24 th annual FTVA reunion that celebrates the establishment and development of a great organization, one we're all proud to have served (and are still serving).

Your board of directors is fully engaged with an action group from Security Hill to do the detailed planning for the October 20-22 events. As I've participated in this planning over the past several years, I'm always struck with just how much has to get done to make our reunion a success. Based on our most recent discussions with the active duty folks, everything is on track for the fall (although October weather in San Antonio is sometimes not what we think of as fall). If you're attending this year, keep an eye out for our newest FTVA "doober”: a 2006 calendar featuring pictures from places we grew to love (well, most of the time) while serving there. More details about the calendar appear elsewhere in this issue of the newsletter.

This will be my final President's Corner. My two-year term as president of your board of directors is up after the October reunion. I've enjoyed the opportunity to lead the monthly sessions we hold to review how our association is doing, and I want to publicly thank and praise your directors for their time and effort in guiding the association's course. Your association is strong both financially and in terms of commitment to preserving and strengthening our heritage, and supporting important people recognition programs for today's active duty force. It has been my honor and privilege to serve as your president.


Keep in touch,

Grover Jackson
