57th Alumni Association

70th Anniversary 1942 – 2012


Today on the weather channel I see snow and ice moving across the Mid-south and Midwest heading for the North East. I know this weather condition will soon pass and before long we will see signs of spring. As of today there are only 241 days until your 57th Alumni Association reunion. Your Board of Director’s are working now to make the upcoming October 2012 reunion the best yet. Here is a quick update for you.

We are delighted to announce that reunion banquet dinner speaker this year will be Major General Frederick H.” Rick" Martin the current Director of Operations, Headquarters Air Mobility Command, Scott Air Force Base, Ill. Major General Martin was also the Operations Officer and Commander, 57th Airlift Squadron July 1995 - June 1998.
