Hall of Recognition Ribbon Cutting
On Friday, July 22nd, at 9:00 a.m., the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly renovated “Hall of Recognition” and VA-52 tribute on the mezzanine level of the National Naval Aviation Museum.
The “Hall of Recognition,” dedicated to the thousands of individuals and organizations who have made the National Naval Aviation Museum a reality, has recently undergone an extensive renovation, including installation of a new six-screen digital donor recognition wall, a large-format touch screen donor kiosk, and a special tribute to Attack Squadron (VA) 52, the Knight Riders.
This effort has been made possible by the estate of the late Lieutenant David A. Webb, USNR, and his wife Mrs. Jean Ann Webb, which has contributed nearly one million dollars to the Foundation through our “Wings of Gold Society” planned giving program.
Lieutenant Webb—a former member of VA-52—and his wife Jean Ann requested that the Foundation not only recognize their financial contribution, but also the historical contribution of the entire Knight Rider squadron. As part of the recent renovation, the Foundation has developed a tribute to VA-52, including a wall mural of a VA-52 A-1 Skyraider and video interviews with former Knight Riders.
The David and Jean Anne Webb estate was represented at the event by family members Jonathan and Janice Korda, and a number of former VA-52 Knight Riders.
