The Air Force Special Operations Command will be hosting a Warrior Care Giver And Resilience Education (C.A.R.E.) Summit on the Florida Gulf Coast 24-28 April 2017. At this event, Wounded Warriors, Caregivers and their families are invited to gather for a week of recreation and growth from the tragedy they have individually and collectively experienced.
We have reserved the afternoon of Thursday, 27 April 17 for organizations to interact and provide information of the support you can give for the duration of the healing process for these warriors and their family members.
Your participation will be greatly appreciated, as your organization is critical to the support network for our military, and especially to the wounded, ill and injured. Please return this registration form to AFSOCA1.warriorcare@us.af.mil if your organization will be able to attend. Additional information will be forthcoming as specifics are known.

Very respectfully,
Executive Director, AFSOC/A1

Happy New Year everyone! Well, I was a complete slacker during the holidays and got absolutely nothing accomplished on the website that I wanted to do. Sorry about that, but it sure was nice to do nothing! And now I’ll be busy until 10 March with my work. After that, I make time for the site. I may try to squeeze in some updates until then, but don’t want to promise anything.

On 17 Jan 17, MH-53J tail number 68-10367 will be dedicated to the Cannon AFB Airpark. Time will likely be 1300L.

I’m still working on the Videos page. I have some of them uploaded to YouTube and created a playlist for you to view. Working on getting my embedded player to work for the rest of the videos (that YouTube won’t let you post).

Tom Hinson is helping with the databases for the lineages and tail histories.

Requiem for a Heavy-lift is an article written by Jim Henthorn about 68-10369’s last flight heading to the bone yard. GREAT READ!

John Grove Memorial

John Grove’s legacy lives on and not just in the PAVE LOW world. John helped fund Bless the Children, an international organization helping the poorest children of the world who are living under extreme conditions. He did this with his own retirement check! After his passing, several other caring PAVE guys stepped in to help out. In short, Bless The Children is looking for annual donations in order to provide a minimum of $2000 a month towards his memorial fund.
