Warmest greetings to members of the AVG Forum and global supporters of the AVG Flying Tigers legacy.

This is a new thread to share with you the return of the 3 Tigers to their families, thanks in large part to the efforts of Lt. Col. Kenneth E. Tilley, USAFR (Ret.), former Historian with JPAC, Mr. Michael Linnington, former Director DPAA, the U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force.

Maax C. Hammer, Jr. AVG of the 2nd Squadron traveled aboard Delta Airlines flights from Hawaii to Atlanta, and from Atlanta to St. Louis, MO.  He was accompanied by his military escort and arrived at the funeral home in Carbondale, IL this afternoon.  There will be a visitation on Monday 20 March from 4-6pm at the Walker Funeral Home, 112 S. Poplar St., Carbondale, IL.  Burial will be in a private service with military honors.

We will keep you posted regarding the upcoming returns of Peter William Atkinson and John Dean Armstrong, honoring the wishes of the families.

Our Tigers are coming Home......!
