AAFHA Archives: 2017-1991
From the Irish Pub in Atlantic City, NJ. The Army Air Forces Historical Association joined us for dinner Friday night. Yesterday they did a presentation for the Civil Air Patrol to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the 1st flight out of Bader Field. We were honored by your visit.
For over 20 years, AAFHA has been remembering and honoring the history of WWII aviation. We paticipate in public forums and airshows like MAAM WWII Weekend in Reading PA, Open House Airshows at McGuire AFB, and our "Hometown" Airshow at the Greenwood Lake Airport. We march in the Riveredge July 4th Parade and the SGt. John Basilone Parade in Raritan, NJ, and participate in local Pearl Harbor Commemorations. Our private member only events include our Annual Dinner Dance and Picatinny Luncheon.
More recently the AAFHA USO Squadronaires have been performing for Veteran, seniors and historical societies at various venues throughout the Tri-state area. Here are some photo albums from our long and distinguished history! From the most recent to our ancient past, scroll down the history of the Army Air Forces Historical Society!
