The 117th Air Refueling Wing is preserving history as past and present guardsmen work with the local flight museum here.

The group will preserve, duplicate and log hundreds of old photographs and artifacts.

Col. Scott Grant, the 117 ARW Vice Commander, contacted Dr. Brian J. Barsanti, Executive Director & Historian with the Southern Museum of Flight, for advice and assistance on the project. Grant realized how much the unit has transformed and saw the importance of organizing and maintaining its historical records.

For more information on this project or if you would like to volunteer, please contact Capt. Brandi L. Hyatt, Wing Executive Officer at
