The Greenwood Art Association did an outstanding research job for the write-up
to match the painting. The artist, Geoff Bennett, did a superb job, and the Museum Staff, Volunteers and Base personnel enthusiastically
unveiled and accepted this tribute to Ron. The 413 SAR Squadron provided an OPI to arrange and coordinate a Base briefing
and visit for "The Veteran Flyers & Spouses" to the "Ops" site.
