SUPPORT The 99th Bomb Group Historical Society (BGHS) - Buy Your Christmas Gifts NOW! 99th BGHS Supply Store! Make a Donation through "The Friends of the 99th"
Dear 99th BGHS Members,
Christmas will soon be here and now is a great time to consider doing something for the 99th BGHS and for yourself, or family and friends! For those who have contacted us wishing to make a memorial financial contribution to the 99th BGHS in memory of Jerry Buckingham, please see our Friends of the 99th
for details, and note on your check JAB
Look at our 99th BGHS Supply Store
list for the various 99th BG memorabilia we have for sale that perhaps you might want for yourself, or would make a great gift for family and friends! Orders received by NLT December 10, 2017
should be processed to be mailed and arrive before Christmas.
Our new design "Diamondbacks Cap" at $20 (including shipping) is one of our best selling items, second only to our oversized hard cover history book "The Diamondbacks"
of which we have a limited supply left at $65 (including shipping), and they are subject to quantity and membership restrictions. NOTE: Regretfully, due to increasing postage and packaging costs, we will be increasing the price to $75 for the book "The Diamondbacks" on all orders postmarked or received after December 15, 2017.
The 99th BG Squadron patches and pins are also in demand. Several 99 BGHS members have bought multiple patches for use in the display cases honoring their 99th BG Veteran, for wear on their own A2 or Bomber jackets. We are especially honored for those purchased to be worn by family members currently serving in our Armed Forces as remembrance of their Grandfathers service in the 99th BG to protect our freedom.
Let us know how you are honoring the memory and service of your 99th BG Veteran
by sending in to us photos of your display, or your story of how you remember and honor your 99th BG Veteran. I personally have purchased and donated copies of the "The Diamondbacks"
to several public and service organizations in my home town including the Public Library, the Historical Society, and Veterans Post.
With the Holidays coming soon, many of you will be having company and are cleaning up, and clearing out, your homes to make room for visiting family and friends. During this process, consider donating 99th BG related items to the 99th BGHS if they no longer have a place in your home, or with other family members, or just send us high quality electronic files of the photos, letters, records, memorabilia, etc. as Friends of the 99th
. If you have any questions about donations, or any other 99th BGHS matters, please contact Mr. Gary T. Staffo
directly to discuss.
Best wishes to each and all for a very joyous holiday season filled with good health, good friends, and good times!
