With Memorial Day upon us, it is time to reflect on all Veterans, those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country and those who came home to bear witness to their comrades’ passing. Thus it is with great honor that we present Chaplain Tim Maloney at the May 21 PCAM member meeting. Tim will share his memories of Veterans he has known, many of whom were members of the Pacific Coast Air Museum. He will also reflect on the annual Avenue of the Flags ceremony held at the Santa Rosa Memorial Park, which is held each year to celebrate freedom by honoring the men and women who have served our country. And on a lighter note, he might just tell us some inside stories about the Reno Air Races, with which he has been involved since 1968.

Flown West: Hattie Stone
The Pacific Coast Air Museum is grieved to announce that our friend and benefactor Hattie Stone passed away on Monday, December 23, 2013. She was 95.
A formal memorial for Hattie was held at the Santa Rosa Veterans Memorial Building on Thursday, February 27. Approximately 200 people were there to pay their respects, and formal presentations were made by representatives from AMVETS Post 40, the Navy WAVES, American Legion Post 21, and the Pacific Coast Air Museum. Military Honors were performed by AMVETS Post 40. A planned flyover by the PCAM T-28 had to be cancelled because of the weather.
Hattie's contribution to the Sonoma County community and the Pacific Coast Air Museum cannot be overestimated. A U.S. Navy veteran, she contributed time, effort, money, and her incomparable spirit to many veteran-related organizations. PCAM was among her favorites. The PCAM Hattie Stone Memorial Building Fund is named after her. Much of the money she donated made it possible for us to create the F-15 "First Responder" exhibit in 2011, which did a lot to raise the prestige of the Museum in the eyes of the public, the community of museums, and the military.

Rest in peace, Hattie.
