Were are privileged to have Lt Col George Hardy, USAF (Ret) as our April luncheon speaker.

As you can see from the calendar on Page 12 of the newsletter, there are many events planned during the next month —— I hope you will join us and enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow MOAS members.. Looking forward to seeing you soon!!

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this issue of The Breeze - and as always, please let me know if you have a suggestion on how we can improve it.


Thank you & Stay Safe
