A recent letter is revealing new details about the possible move of the c-a-f headquarters out of the Permian Basin.
The letter was sent to CAF members by Neils Agather, a squadron leader.
It states that less than half of the absentee ballots have been returned.
Also in the letter, he writes the Midland-based High Sky Wing, the CAF Museum, and Airsho will remain in Midland.
Read the full letter below.
CAF B-29/B-24 SQUADRON ABSENTEE BALLOTS
HAVE YOU MAILED YOUR CAF
Over the past several months there was an intensive effort to inform CAF members of the proposed change to the CAF Bylaws to allow the General Staff to negotiate a new location for CAF headquarters and the development of a new CAF airbase in a major population center.
Many of you were unable to attend the membership meeting in Midland and requested an absentee ballot. Those ballots were mailed several weeks ago and should be in your hands by now. CAF HQ has reported that less than half of the absentee ballots have been returned.
Let me urge you to please complete and return your ballot if you have not already done so. I will not presume to tell you how to vote but I strongly believe that if the CAF is to continue to grow and be a major influence in the education of Americans of the sacrifices made by our military aviators, this revision to the bylaws should be approved.
Remember, despite the inaccurate negative information advanced by the press and several politicians from the Midland area, the Midland-based High Sky Wing, the CAF Museum and Airsho WILL REMAIN IN MIDLAND!
To accomplish the bylaw change, 75% of the voting members need to approve the ballot measure by voting YES. Wouldn't it be a shame if we get 74% voting yes and the initiative is turned down by a minority vote? Your vote counts. Please complete your ballot and mail it to HQ today.
