Veterans Air Navigator Michael Frome

What an exquisite honor to introduce our newest Veterans family member. Our Veterans Air Express navigator Michael Frome presents his own story, in his own words. I’m beyond excited to share two of Michael’s articles written on location for The Washington Post from April 1946 in Prague with Veterans Air. How’s that for impressive!!!

Edward Martz, Veterans Air Express Navigator

I am deeply sad to write this post. Veterans Air has lost a precious member. I have lost a cherished friend. Edward J. Martz, Jr. Veterans Air Express Navigator, died this week. He was 91. I’ll be forever grateful for having met him personally, known his smile, reveled in his stories about his role in my Dad’s airline. God speed, Ed Martz. Say hello to Saunie for me.

Veterans Air Express first hostess. Found “Treasure!”

UPDATE 8/30/15: Mid-August, I spent hours with Marilyn Gries in Florida. First at breakfast and then in her home. She is vivacious and wonderful. Yesterday and today, I updated two Posts with photos of Marilyn & her husband Bob on the website. He was one of the Veterans co-founders, a navigator & manager. Yesterday Marilyn & I spoke on the phone. For now, come see the first of my photos of Marilyn. And read (or re-read) HER story — the Veterans Air Express first unofficial “hostess” and a new and now dearly cherished friend of mine! What a Treasure!
