I would like to personally thank you and your staff for arranging a tour of the Peterson Air and Space Museum for the senior leadership of the Marine Corps Judge Advocate community. We were impressed with both your facilities and the tours that we received. Thank you again for your efforts. They truly enhanced our conference. Brig Gen James Walker

Let us introduce you to the Heringtons, Jim, Nancy, Pat, and Madison (not pictured).

Jim, Pat and Madison helped the Museum staff move our airstairs out of the water-saturated grass and back onto our EC-121's concrete display pad. The airstairs had been stuck in the grass since a severe December 2021 windstorm blew the stairs off the pad. The EC-121 was not harmed at all, fortunately.

The Harringtons were visiting the Museum on Thursday June 16th, 2022 and jumped in to help us push our way out of the muck!

Thanks Harringtons!!
