Become a Sponsor


For 20 years, donations helped fund our projects and events like the AC-119 Gunship KIA Memorial Plaque, AC-119 Paintings and Lithos, Stinger Monument, AC-119 History Book, Squadron Flags with Campaign Streamers, AC-119 Gunship Memorial Bench, new Website, Legacy Squadrons, Memorial Ales, Outreach, personal videotaped sessions, and especially Reunions that include hosted KIA families.

ALL our projects and Events focus on our Association’s Mission – Why We Exist:

  • To preserve our fixed-wing gunship heritage and history.
  • To remember our fallen and keep lit the flames of our camaraderie; old friendships and new ones.
  • To educate historians and the public about the mission, aircrew, groundcrew, and others associated with the AC-119 gunships.

It’s amazing what our Association accomplished!

What’s next? How do we do best achieve the next phase of our Association’s journey and Mission? One way is to make our Reunions as affordable as possible, to help us reach out to more of our AC-119 Air and Ground Crew, and their families – NOW – while they’re still with us!

Getting us together while we still can is the biggest plus there is. We can help do that by reducing Reunion costs – making attendance affordable for all – and by hosting special Reunion guests such as KIA families.
