Statement of Purpose

The 147th Veterans’ Association is open to any current or past member of the 147th Aviation Company. This includes any of the various names used over the years to include the current designation of B Company 3-25th AVN GSAB.

The association is a non-political group formed for the purpose of helping old Hillclimbers find each other and to come together as comrades in arms. The association is further dedicated to insuring that Hillclimber history is preserved and passed on.

To that end the association will organize periodic reunions and publish a Hillclimber newsletter with articles of interest to Hillclimbers past and present.

THERE ARE NO DUES. It is our desire to maximize the listing of as many Hillclimbers as possible for the greater good of the organization and the preservation of Hillclimber history. The association will raise funds by having a prize raffle at reunions and the sale of Hillclimber items such as the Hillclimber Calendar and other items of interest.

Thanks to all of you for your support over the past ten years. Without the help of the people in the Association many of the things that we have done would not have been possible.
