Membership in the 307th Bomb Wing B-47/KC-97 Association

Membership Criteria.

Membership in the Association is open to all who were associated with the 307th Bomb Wing at Lincoln AFB during the period 1954 to 1965. This includes military members, spouses, widows, widowers, and civilian employees.

Many former 307th personnel, who have not bothered to submit an application for membership, are carried on our mailing list, and receive mailings of the Association’s periodic newsletters.

Because of demonstrated interest, a number of others have been granted “Associate Membership” status. These include former members of the 98th Bomb Wing, 818th Air Division, and the 551st Strategic Missile Squadron at LAFB, and children of former members of the 307th Bomb Wing.  Associate Members also receive mailings of the newsletter.

If you are eligible for membership in the Association and have not done so, we urge you to submit a Membership Form. CLICK HERE for a printable Membership Application Form.

Financial Stuff.

Relying entirely upon donations from members, and any funds that remain after reunions are completed, the Association charges no dues or membership fees. Current treasurer’s reports appear in each issue of the newsletter, and the good news is that thus far the Association has remained financially solvent and able to support the newsletter, website, and the setup for our biannual reunions.

Unfortunately, our IRS status as a 501 (c) (19) Veteran’s Organization does not permit donations to the Association to be tax deductible. Deductions earn only our gratitude!

The gory details of our IRS status and the restrictions it imposes can be seen in Vern Biaett’s addendum to the Historical Origin of the 307th BW Association.

Website Access.

Access to the Events and Newsletter pages of this website is password controlled and available only to persons who are known to and authenticated by the Association’s website administrators. This is because these sections may contain personal information and other news of interest to 307th associated people, but which should not be made available to the general public.

Any person who currently receives the newsletter and who has an email address on file with the Association has been automatically approved for access, and need only complete the process to sign up for a password.

For those who have not previously notified the Association of their email address, the process is a little lengthier, and requires the website administrator to specifically approve the issuance of a password to the individual. This is done by an exchange of automatically generated emails, and may require up to a day to complete depending on the speed of the administrator’s response.

For individuals previously unknown to the Association, it is required that the individual provide evidence of the nature of his/her association with the 307th or LAFB, mailing address, phone number, and email address. These may take longer to approve, as the website administrator must be satisfied that the application is legitimate.
