Veterans Air expanded friendships

The calendar today says 26 October 2018. That disqualifies this summary as Breaking News — as well as the Posts I’ll link-in here as soon as they are written). But mid-June through mid-July, Veterans Air expanded friendships, contacts, perspective, and public exposure, covering 3,550 land miles in Gracie (VAE’s ground transport RV) and 3,700 air miles. The round-trip from Santa Fe looked something like this:

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 the spirit and character of this organization that Jack obviously loved!
