110th Fighter Wing will held A-10 Farewell Dinner

According to 110th Fighter Wing's newspaper JetStream Journal (June 2009 public online PDF issue), the unit will held an A-10 Farewell Dinner on July 11, 2009.

Probably one of the very last shots in front of 172nd Fighter Squadron's insignia: Brig. Gen. Richard Ritchie (Ret.) speaks to a group at the Battle Creek Air National Guard Base, Wednesday April 29, 2009. Ritchie was a U.S. Air Force Ace in Vietnam and spoke about how individual traits and teamwork allowed him to be a top fighter pilot. (Photo by Master Sgt. Dale Atkins)
