Eighth Air Force Historical Society of Minnesota


The 8th Air Force Historical Society of Minnesota has about 325 registered members, including World War II veterans from the 8th Air Force, the 9th Air Force, the 15th Air Force, the Naval Air Corps, and the Marine Air Corps. The general public is also invited to join. Memberships have been granted to a number of interested men and women who were not involved in war, but who enjoy history and the stories of our veterans.

About 40 - 60 of our registered members are actually active and attend the weekly luncheon at the Knights of Columbus hall in Bloomington.

The 8th has an annual Christmas dinner at Mancini's Char House in St. Paul, held the first Sunday in December at noon. The MC is usually local news anchor Stan Turner. The price of the dinner is $30. To reserve your seats forward a check to Gary Birchem, 28790 Ivywood Trail, Chisago City, MN 55013.

A list of active members is available upon request. A justified need for the list must be provided. And each request will be judged on its merits by the organization's leadership. To make a request for a list of active members, contact
