After many years and lots of physical, financial and emotional support from too many people to list, yesterday we completed a major accomplishment for our organization.

Our two little treasures are now snuggled into what had appeared to be a giant shelter, just like two peas in a pod. Not so giant anymore.

Thank you all. Our prime directive of PRESERVATION has taken a giant step forward and couldn't have been done without all of you.

"While doing research for my book on the development of U.S. Navy carrier-based jet fighters, I came across a cryptic reference to a proposed rocket-propelled interceptor."
