Dear Fellow Knights;  

Merry Christmas.  After 3 months of deliberation, the Garrison Commander at Ft. Rucker has finally approved our memorial celebrating the 114th Aviation Company and attached units.  We have ordered the granite and hope to have the etching beginning early next year.  It is our intention to have it completed and have a dedication ceremony at Ft. Rucker in late March 2019.  As we get more information on the completion date, we will notify the membership.  The post will help support us for the ceremony.  Major thanks to Gene Boyle who put the whole packet together and pushed on the bureaucracy to get the approval.

   Our reunion in Omaha is taking shape.  It is a wonderful time to get together and remember how great we were and how the relationships forged in crisis have lasted and grown.  As I write this, many memories come flooding in and I am eager to see you.  Please mark it on your calendar and make the best effort to attend.  

   Our memories are wonderful blessings, especially in this season of Christmas.  As we get older, we have lost not only fellow Knights, but many family and close friends.  It is good to remember the special relationships and great times with those we love and respect.  It is a comfort to remember those who came along side of you and helped you through some tough times; and also, to remember those you helped.  There are still many special people in our lives who we can touch.  Reach out over this Christmas season and remind others of how much they have meant in your life.  There are many of you who have touched me and my family and we give thanks for you.  May you know we sincerely appreciate your friendship and fellowship.  We are richly blessed by knowing you and may all blessings be with you.

   Have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year. 


(Editorís note: Jim wrote this expecting that I would have the newsletter out before Christmas. Some family health issues prevented that. I hope each of you had a blessed Christmas. My wish is that you have a wonderful 2019. May Jones)
