Jack Stettner loved life. He was proud of his family, his WWII service, and his role in co-founding Veterans Air. He would have been 97 today. I celebrate his life in a fashion he would approve.

TVC YouTube features VAE ground transport RV

Team me up with Liz Wilcox, creator of The Virtual Campground and TVC YouTube…and watch us go! Liz gave me eleven minutes. And I gave her the story of how Gracie, the Veterans Air Ground Transport RV, enhances and extends my research. Come watch…and bring popcorn.

Thomas E. Cowart, man of many talents and gracious, loving spirit. Veterans Air Flight Engineer in 1946.

In 1942 & ’43 the Army Air Corps turned Thomas E. Cowart from a farm boy into an aircraft mechanic and later a flight engineer. He flew the world as part of an Air Transport group led by Captain Cooper Walker. And after the war, Walker encouraged Cowart to join him at Veterans Air Express and fly the world again. Thomas tells me his vivid-memory story. Come meet him.
