The Collings Foundation has joined with 15 medal of Honor recipients and 120 former Prisoners of War to bring an F-105G Thunderchief to life again as a flying memorial to Vietnam Veterans. Along with the current aircraft - F-4D, TA-4J and UH-1 - the F-105G would take its place of honor in the "Vietnam Memorial Flight." The House Armed Services Committee is currently considering language submitted by Rep. Niki Tsongas (D-MA) to enable the transfer of the Thunderchief to the Collings Foundation (as was done with the other aircraft in the past).
ACTION ITEM: Contact House Armed Committee Chairman Rep. Ike Skelton's office at 202-225-2876 and voice your support of the transfer of an F-105G to the Collings Foundation. Make sure to insist that your views be noted and given Rep. Skelton.
