Madison Area Membership Recruiting Opportunity
115th Fighter Wing – Wisconsin Air National Guard will hold their Wingman/Family Day on Sunday, September 11th from 12:00 to 14:30. The Air Guard Wing will be having Family Day in their Hangar with static displays (and the Packer game!).
This is an effort to support Air Guard family morale and offer them information from resource providers like The American Legion as well. The 115FW is gearing up for a big deployment year, and will be reaching out to us to support Yellow Ribbon events.
This is another great opportunity for The American Legion to reach out to everyone at the 115 Fighter Wing.
Please contact Chris Schmidt at Department headquarters – firstname.lastname@example.org or call (608) 745-1090 and let her know if you are available or interested in supporting the event. We will have an area to bring brochures/literature to provide to the family members.
Activities start at 2 PM
