Thank you Colonel. Not to be presumptive, Semper FI. No Sir, I am sure the Corps was not happy toRead More move MAG 49 to McGuire. I am also sure the Marines attached to the Unit were not happy either. As you might be aware, my Squadron, Marine Fighter Squadron VMF 511, was deactivated in 1972 with the ending of the Vietnam War. Again more cost cutting from DOD no doubt. It seems to me that the Township was more concerned with how much tax revenue could be generated with redevelopment of the property rather than keeping a non-revenue entity on the books. Imagine the $$$ signs the Business Manager saw with that possibility in front of him. What a feather in his cap if he could deliver such a large partial of land to the Township for their coffers. It wouldn't take much to convince BRAC that the base had served its purpose was not wanted in the Township any longer. I could be wrong, but wasn't Mr. McGee the Township Business Manager at the time? Just my thoughts on the subject.

Is Part 1 deliberately misleading? "Loud protests by the people of Horsham" had nothingRead More to do with the military leaving the JRB. It was a BRAC decision, the DOD, Congress, The President ... the whole nine yards. Hard to believe that anyone who is even remotely familiar with the way the JRB BRAC process worked could characterize it that way.

I think the best solution to the problem is to simply switch the land tracts that have been proposedRead More for the school and the museum. If the museum wants the hangar and the the responsibility of fixing it up to make it more climate friendly then they should get it. Again, it would be the museum's responsibility to maintain the hangar, not Horsham's. That's the beautiful thing about concept maps and drawings....all you need is some white out or an eraser to make the changes needed. I've always thought the hangar would be an ideal place to have the museum. Certain planes need protection and proper restoration because they are one of a kind. If they aren't cared for properly...we'll lose them to some other museum. My biggest concern for this whole reuse operation was that the base (which will always be Willow Grove in my mind) will be all but forgotten years down the road. No evidence that it was ever there. Just like what happened in Warminster to Johnsville. All but blotted away from the landscape and history. I'm sure they will not give the new roads and streets in the redevelopment names left over from the base. Keeping the hangar would change that and keep something from the base there as a reminder of what that area was and what happened there.

The air space over the base is open for air traffic,They should have just flown the Pitcarin planeRead More around the base a few times.Then land the plane in Trenton so the Posey Brothers Inc.can disassemble it.
Mike Shortall Sr August 15, 2012 at 01:39 pm
Not unexpected ... No way the Navy is going to find the money or want to spent it for a singleRead More plane landing regardless of the historical significance. Once these bases are shuttered, they probably would need a dispensation from half the U.S. Government to reopen any funding. And it's doubtful any sponsors in local or state governments are likely to fund it either.

What's really tragic is that if aircraft could land at the Willow Grove runway for their last flightRead More (to the museum) - then the DVHAA could probably get a C-130 or other aircraft on the way to the mothballs at Davis-Monthan AFB, AZ. Due to the long distance to Arizona, extensive (and expensive) preparation for the "desert slumber", PLUS 20+ years of boneyard maintenance - it is far cheaper just to fly the military aircraft to Willow Grove and the museum. The C-130 is just the first of several aircraft that the museum could get and save the taxpayer hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars.

I also like revenue. Pardon my omission :)

I'd like to sign the pettion I didn't even know there was one.

Hi Karen, The petition has been turned over to council, but the Hatboro Residents' Association mayRead More still be taking signatures. Try emailing HRA19040@gmail.com

What a great story!! These young Marines will benefit so much from the time spent with their groupRead More learning to become caring and giving adults. Hats off to the Vogels for all the hard work they put into the children!!
Eileen Beane July 22, 2012 at 01:06 am
Who is benefiting from all the fund raising going on? It has not been the kids.
Robert Applegarth July 23, 2012 at 12:52 am
Eileen Beane, If what you say is true, then why don't you contact the Marine Corps League and adviseRead More them of the information you have regarding the apparent misappropriation of funds. Don't forget to include all the pertinent information such as how much money was raised from each fund raising event, the dates of the fundraisers, where the money was spent, and who actually is responsible for this apparent misappropriation of funds. I am sure they would be more than happy to address the situation. Please advise everyone on this site as to the outcome of your efforts and what the Marine Corps League was able to confirm in this matter. We need more folks like you to be stand-up individuals who move forward with their claims to resolve such irresponsible actions; especially those which involve misuse of any military organizations. I hope to hear from you concerning your assertion as stated: "Who is benefiting from all the fund raising going on? It has not been the kids."

There is NOTHING WRONG with the runway at Willow Grove. I worked there from May1994 til Sep. 2011Read More (as a weapons loader on the A-10 for the 111th FW). Just more lies and scare tactics from Mr. McGee and the township. He's wanted this base closed for a long time and he finally got his wish. I agree with JNB56, this would be a fitting end for the mailwing and the base. It's bad enough that all the history at the base will be dulldozed over soon enough.
Robert Applegarth July 19, 2012 at 02:02 pm
What a great and fitting manner to have the plane come full circle to land and finally nest at home.Read More McGee should attend the event and issue a proclamation commemorating the event to the Pitcairn Family and the Museum in a show of support and thanks to them. Horsham should be proud and excited to host this historic event.

Charles Roche has been the inspiration and initial driving force behind the movement to rewindRead More history and get our historic clock ticking once again. Hatboro has a tremendous resource in Winship and Pieces of Time to keep this project a Main Street Affair. Thank You Charles and all involved for your dedication and vision.

A true work of HeArt. Lora is a talented young woman. I can't wait to seeing this mural! SheRead More certainly deserves the "thank you" given by council.
