ABOUT Veterans Air

This Blog is a research & cataloging tool.  It’s a place to log what I discover about Veterans Air Line and Veterans Air Express — referred to collectively for convenience as Veterans Air.

A highly critical part of my research is finding the people who were involved in founding, getting airborne, maintaining, and day-to-day operations of Veterans Air from late 1945 through 1947.  Since the inception was in 1945, equally important is discovering and communicating with the families, friends or associates of the founding members, ex-employees, vendors, etc.  I think you “get” the scope.

My Dad, Saunie Gravely, founded Veterans Air at Newark Air Depot, New Jersey, with a maintenance base for a short time at Hendricks Field, Sebring, FL.   Saunie was President, Chairman of the Board, and a vital Flight Crew member.  Within weeks of my birth in November, 1945, he named a company DC-3 after me – the GAYE LYN.

A RECOMMENDED READ and irreplaceable for me: "Memories of the Jing Bao & Beyond," Authors Choice Press, 2001. Written by our own JACK Z. STETTNER - Veterans Air Express Co-Founder, Investor, Pilot and Operations Manager. As well as his considerable WWII experiences, Jack's book revealed new details about Veterans Air Express...plus the spirit and character of this organization that Jack obviously loved!
