Rhode Island


A group of Sampson vets met at Denny's Restaurant, in Warwick, RI on Friday August 28, 2009 for the purpose of forming a Rhode Island squadron. At a second meeting held on Tuesday October 20, 2009 it was agreed that future monthly meetings be held at this location.
The vets in attendance enjoyed the get together, exchanging stories about their experiences while at Sampson and other Air Force assignments.

Our meetings are held at Twins Oaks Restaurant 100 Sabra Street Cranston, RI in “Billy’s Room”on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 1PM.

We invite all vets to come and join us.

One web site had membership applications on the site. Comm. Fox suggested to have a picture of our memorial on our front page.  We'll need a web site before we start to ask for donations. We will also need to reach out to find different people to get donations.  Discussion followed.
Remember  the Sampson AFB  RI Sq. in your will.
We need to raise between  $30,000 to $ 35,000
Comm. Fox  would hold off with talking to the Air Force Association. until we get our final design of the memorial.
Comm. Fox asked for input that besides lunch is there  any interest in having a speaker come to our meeting. Open for future discussion.
