On October 5, 2017 Civil Air Patrol will become a part of history when East Whiteland Township, RICOH USA Inc., and the Tredyffrin Eastown Historical Society will dedicate an historical marker honoring the significant legacy of the Main Line Airport. During the first year-and-a-half of World War II the Paoli squadron, Civil Air Patrol, used the Main Line Airport as a crucial logistics center while patrolling the mid-Atlantic coast against marauding German submarines and provided flight crews to Coastal Patrol squadrons as far away as Virginia. Lt. Col Kevin Berry and TSgt George Brizak will be guest speakers at the ceremony representing Civil Air Patrol.

Please come and participate in this historic event and become a part of Civil Air Patrol legacy on Thursday, October 5, 2017 at 2:00 pm at 70 Valley Stream Parkway, Malvern PA.  To read more about history of Mail Line Airport please visit http://www.tehistory.org/mlapix.htm and read an article published in Daily Local News http://www.dailylocal.com/general-news/20170925/dinniman-to-recognize-history-of-main-line-airport
