Meet-A-Mate / Mid Year Function

Date: Thursday Jun 28, 2018, 12:00 pm

Guest Speaker will be AFA member Jack Bell.  Jack is a sprightly centenarian and recently spoke at the Shrine of Remembrance for the Victory in Europe commemoration. As well as covering his Air Force service in WW2, Jack also spoke of his experience as a prisoner of war. All who heard Jack speak at the Shrine were amazed with not only the story he told, but specifically the message he most strongly made - that of compassion. It was truly an uplifting presentation, something that we as Air Force Association members can be extremely proud of.
