"The Thud" F-150

Vietnam era combat pilots will reunite on the Saturday, November 13th at 11:00 a.m. at the Flying Heritage Collection to host a panel in which they will share their stories with the community and honor the men and women who have risked their lives for our country. This special Veterans Day event at the Flying Heritage Collection will feature pilots who flew with the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War, braving enemy MiGs and deadly anti-aircraft fire as well as surface-to-air missiles during bombing missions over North Vietnam.  During the Vietnam War these pilots flew F-105 Thunderchiefs. Nicknamed the “Thud,” the F-105 Thunderchief was the Air Force’s all-time biggest single-engine fighter. Designed and built to deliver nuclearweapons, the planes were also responsible for carrying conventional bombs over Vietnam. All veterans are welcomed at FHC for free on November 13, 2010. For more information see the Flying Heritage Collection website.

Trinity to inaugurate John Reed as seventh president
denisegl | October 14, 2010 | 2:08 pm

Trinity Lutheran College will inaugurate John W. Reed as its seventh president during a ceremony held at 3 p.m. Saturday in the Historic Everett Theatre. The event is open to the public and members of the community are invited to attend. Rep. Rick Larsen and Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson are scheduled to bring greetings to the new president. Board Chair Ernie Fosse will preside at the ceremony, assisted by Deborah Squires, board vice chair, who led the nationwide search process that ultimately selected Reed for consideration. In May, the college’s board of directors unanimously elected Reed, who had served the previous nine months as chief executive officer. “I’m honored to be Trinity’s next president,” Reed said. “I am excited to assume this position at an important time in the college’s history. My hope is that Trinity will be able to attract attention within the higher education community for the innovative things we do.” Reed’s inaugural message Saturday will highlight the college’s unique position to be bold and creative amid the significant economic challenges facing most colleges and universities today. He will also lift up the college’s partnership with the greater Everett community. Read more »
