CAT Reunion 2012 in SF a Huge Success!

Posted by

THANK YOU to everyone who worked so hard on this year’s reunion…and many thanks as well to our distinguished guests and all of you who made the trip out to San Francisco to join the celebration!  A report and photographs will be published in the upcoming Bulletin.  If anyone has any photographs taken at the reunion that they would like to share on the website and possibly in the Bulletin (space permitting), please contact Carol at [email protected]

The backdrop for our banquet was the Civil Air Transport (CAT) Exhibit a the SFO Museum, on view through April, 2013 – Curator John Hill and his staff mounted a wonderfully crafted exhibit paying tribute to the unique history of CAT through photographs, documents and a wide variety of items and memorabilia on loan from CAT Members and the University of Texas at Dallas.  A fascinating exhibit in a stunning venue, so if at all possible, please don’t miss it!

During the banquet evening we were all moved by the debut of Monte and Klaire Markham’s poignant film “Faces & Voices of CAT”, which captured the heart and soul of General Chennault and the brave men and women he led.  This was a short film made especially for this event, and it has given us renewed inspiration to continue our fundraising efforts to allow Monte and Klaire to complete a full featured documentary film of CAT.  “Faces and Voices of CAT” will be mailed to members unable to attend the reunion and take a copy home (one copy per registration).  If anyone would like to donate to this important project, please CONTACT US.  Even small donations are most welcome, as funding organizations often look at participation as well as the amount raised.

Already we are looking forward to the next reunion and exhibit…in San Diego, hopefully.  Stay tuned!

RECENT COMMENTS

Civil Air Transport (CAT) was an airline founded by Lt. General Claire Lee Chennault, leader of the Flying Tigers, and Whiting Willauer of China Defense Supplies at the conclusion of World War II.  Most of the pilots were former Tigers or other combat pilots from the Asian Theatre.  For the next four decades, CAT, and then its successor, Air America, were primary instruments of American foreign policy in Asia.
