1964 Crash

As president, I  have set a goal to provide funding for the creation of a combined memorial for the USAF and US Army personnel the perished in the 1964 crash of two C-119 aircraft.   I hope we can raise over $1,800 toward this memorial.   Nine USAF and eight Army personnel died in the crash.

Donations may be made to:
Clinton County Historical Society
PO Box 529
Wilmington, OH 45177

For more information or to ask questions please contact Tom McVey at ohioairforce@gmail.com.

Remittances should have at the bottom of the check “April 1964 Crash” this will identify the purpose of the  donation.  They are the depository for the funds and are a 501C3, therefore donations are tax deductible.

We do not yet have final design, but we think the front will describe the crash and the reverse side will list the names of those that perished.
