However, in more recent years the family connection was reestablished by Bill Golden, a recently deceased family member. Spending most of his adult life discovering the history of Birdseye, he devoted much of his time centered around unearthing the story of this beautiful building because of to its connection

I think it went pretty well. The elementary schoolers really liked their Eagle Buddies and thought they did a great job. The middle schoolers learned a lot from the experience and definitely helped the elementary schoolers.

This memorial was made to represent the men and women in the air force and to honor their sacrifices. The Air Force memorial’s first location was moved because it looked over the Marine Corps Memorial. This was a problem because several marine groups did not want any structure in the way of their memorial.

These responsibilities included laboring over a desk drafting a schematic for the entire project, followed months of
