I am honored to be able to be a small part of the "hands-on" volunteer effort to restore this amazing piece of history. How many of us will ever have the chance to work on a B-17 in our lifetime? I am hoping I will be around to see it fly some day!!! It is important to keep this part of history alive.
B-17 Alliance has a great project of taking a WWII B-17 Bomber back to flying condition. It will be a flying tribute to our veterans and their sacrifice for the freedom of our country. Since 100 percent of donations go toward the project of restoring the B-17 "Lacey Lady", I feel like my donations are utilized to the maximum . Lots of volunteers are working on the project and they all feel the same way I do.
The B-17 Alliance is a great place to get involved in an amazing community project. Restoring the Lacey Lady is a major endeavor and you can be a part of the process. The tiny museum needs docents. There is a monthly Veterans coffee. There are oral history stories to record and share. You can help with fund raising and community activities. You can even volunteer to help with the restoration work. You can help this project grow.
My desire to be part of the B-17 Alliance Group had a very early beginning even before the Group was started. As a young boy I remember climbing up into the aircraft and pretending to be part of the crew, pilot to gunner. As an adult I realized how important this aircraft was in the defeat of Natzi Germany. To me this aircraft symbolizes heart of all the men and women who lost their lives so I can live free today. I volunteer my time to support the Group in its effort to preserve the history of WWII and teach it to all future generations. I want to see this aircraft fly again to be a reminder of the incredible spirit of the airmen who helped win the war.
I have been working with B-17 Alliance from day one. This non-profit builds relationships above all else. Our leadership exemplifies integrity and honest honor to all who have served. We invite you to join us for one of our many events that build community and relationships with all those who have served.
