Congressman Pearce, an active FASF member, represents the NM Second District in which Columbus is located. The Congressman was a Jet Fighter Pilot in the Air Force and flew combat missions during the Vietnam War, where he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and two Air Medals. His full biography was published in the book, “Just Fly the Plane, Stupid!”

The Congressman and other dignitaries are planning to attend the Centennial.  The President of the El Paso Daedalian Flight 24 (A Fraternity of Military Aviators founded by World War I aviators), Charlie Overstreet and some of his fellow colleagues, all FASF members, are also planning to attend. The FASF has also been notified that other FASF members from the El Paso Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) will visit Columbus on the 12th, as well.  Bill Madden, FASF Airfield Site Chairman and some of his team will join Ric Lambart in making a special pictorial presentation at 10:00 AM in the Pancho Villa State Park Recreation Hall during the big celebratory event.  Please keep checking back on this FASF website to remain up to date.  Changes will be posted right here as they develop.
