Beyond that, if you are an F-5 or P-38 unit veteran (air or ground echelon doesn’t matter, all are welcome), a family member or friend of a veteran, or just plane crazy about the Lightning, you should consider membership in the organization. You can even donate a membership for someone else! Through membership you can actively help in accomplishing the mission “…to collect data and memorabilia to preserve and perpetuate the memory of this classic WWII aircraft, the P 38 “Lockheed Lightning,” for future generations.”
