Reaching out to our PAVE LOW family. John Grove's legacy lives on and not just in the PAVE LOW world. John helped fund "Bless the Children", an international organization helping the poorest children of the world who are living under extreme conditions. He did this with his own retirement check! After his passing, several other caring PAVE guys stepped in to help out.
In short, we're looking for annual donations in order to provide a minimum of $2000 a month for this organization.
With your help (en mass), this is easily achievable. Some have already chipped in $100/month, but with your lump sum or recurring donation of ANY amount, we can help keep John's legacy alive by helping these children.
The official PAVE LOW history book
"On A Steel Horse I Ride" written by Darrel Whitcomb can be purchased by Non-DoD/Military/Retired personnel from the Air University (based on availability).
