On August 26, 2006 a group of Sampson Vets met in York, PA to form a Pennsylvania Squadron.
One hundred invitations were sent to vets in the 717 area code. Out of the 100 invites, 22 Vets plus 11 wives responded to enjoy a hearty breakfast and share about what they did in their Air Force career plus share what is new at Sampson.

Officers are: Don Lehman - President; Dale Erdman - Vice President; Denise Stokes Secretary/Treasurer.
Board members are: Robert Hood, Russell Sims, Bill Stober and Guy Trude.

At this time the squadron is comprised of 48 paid up members . We are encouraging Sampson Vets to sign up and become members of the Squadron. We realize that not everyone has memories as strong as others of our entrance into the Air Force as well as our indoctrination to manhood at Sampson. Membership will help keep alive those memories which become more alive as we mature into our later years. Membership will bring you fellowship, interesting programs, trips to Air Force related locations and encouragement to visit Sampson for a reunion.

So why not stand up and become a member. Membership is $10.00 per year (membership runs from October to October)

If you are interested send $10.00 or checks payable to Denise Stokes for your first years dues and mail to: 616 Campbell Road, York, PA 17402.
If you are married, your wife will automatically become a member when you sign up. We appreciate your wives attending with you.

Interested Sampson Vets are invited to E-mail the PA Squadron at
Or call Don Lehman at 717-252-2485.
