"Waxie's" application for 61st AHC BORDER bricks.

The 61st A.H.C. 2017 Border Brick Project will go around the 1st Aviation Brigade array; both sides and top (2-3 bricks wide all around). It will forever be at the entry of the Army Aviation Museum, Ft. Rucker, A.L. Brick purchases provide needed money for preservation work. During our visit, we walked in a hangar with over 15 helicopters awaiting restoration. Individual donors, who prepare their inscriptions, may order using the application link above. OR, BUDDY UP for as low as $50! The BUDDY UP HONOR ROLL is also taking donations, in any amount, to list the names of our boys killed in action. This is a great cause and a lasting tribute to the courage, and dedication of the men of the 61st A.H.C. Other assault helicopter company veterans are encouraged to assemble their members, too. Let us make a challenge for the largest assembly on A.H.C. veterans. This is a beautiful entry to the Army Aviation Museum. BUDDY UP bricks are arranged by contacting Gordon Wax at starblazer61ahc@gmail.com, or calling(406-777-1040) for donation information or comments.
