Gone West – It is with regret that I learned of the recent passing of Bob “Punchy” Powell.  Punchy was a WWII Fighter Pilot who distinguished himself flying his P-51 in the 352nd Fighter Group based at Bodney, England.  He always had a story to tell and he worked hard his whole life to insure that the story of what he and his generation did for us would remain alive.  Punchy was a long time member of the Fraternity and of the Georgia Chapter.  He will be deeply missed!

Membership is open to men and women of all nations regardless of race, creed, color or national origin. We look forward to welcoming you into the Fraternity. If you have any questions, just write our National Secretary at the Contact Tab above.

Visitors to Sun’n Fun are cordially invited to stop by our clubhouse on “Clubhouse Row” to check us out and meet our friendly members.  We look forward to meeting you!

We have plans underway to build a similar facility at “Air Venture” at Oshkosh so that we may host a members hospitality center there as well.
