ValiantAirCommandMAINIMAGEWARBIRD RADIO – A special congratulations to The Valiant Air Command Museum.  According to a recent news release, the VAC was awarded the 2013 Solomon Portrait of Excellence Award.  This award, presented during the annual Tourism Day Luncheon, Thursday May 16, has been presented annually since 1994, and recognizes a person or an organization for their contributions to the tourism industry and economy of the Space Coast.

Valiant Air Command Commander Lloyd Morris received the award and its beautifully crafted glass block trophy from chairperson Jim Ridenour, who presented it on behalf of the Brevard Tourism Development Council. The Valiant Air Command was recognized for its 36 year history of excellence in preserving and presenting the heritage of American military aviation, highlighted by the highly successful 2013 TICO Air Show, which featured the US Air Force Thunderbirds.

In his comments, Mr. Ridenour noted the extensive efforts of the Valiant Air Command’s many volunteers, who restore, maintain and explain its Warbird Museum’s collection of over three dozen vintage aircraft, its two large memorabilia rooms, and the three hangars which comprise the Museum’s current facilities at the Space Coast Regional Airport in Titusville.  Commander Morris, expressing his appreciation, noted that the Valiant Air Command has plans to increase both its collection and its facilities in the near future.

The Valiant Air Command will present its traditional Memorial Day Open House Saturday, May 25 through Monday, May 27, 2013. Admission will be free for Florida residents, and for active duty and retired military personnel.  ID will be required.
