We mourn the loss of these exceptional individuals, but are committed to carrying forth their legacy:


John was a founder of the Task Force and a former ranger/historian at Floyd Bennett Field. He was among the first to recognize the importance of the military aviation heritage of Floyd Bennett Field, and at great personal sacrifice, overcame resistance and inertia to do something about it. He was an accomplished author and lecturer, and an inspiring leader.


Frank was among the VRF-1 veterans who traveled to New York to participate in our meetings with the National Park Service. An exceptionally fine man, successful businessman, and eloquent speaker, we are fortunate to have an oral history of his VRF-1 service

Thank You!
