WASHINGTON– Congressman Steve Womack, along with Congressmen Rick Crawford, French Hill, and Bruce Westerman, today introduced a resolution recognizing the Aviation Cadet Museum in Eureka Springs as the National Aviation Cadet Museum of the United States.
Founded in 1994 by former aviation cadet and Air Force First Lieutenant Errol Severe, and his wife, Beth, the museum honors aviators from the 20th century.
After the resolution was introduced, the Arkansas House Delegation released the following statement:
“The Aviation Cadet Museum in Eureka Springs honors America’s aviators who bravely fought for our nation during numerous conflicts in the 20th century. By recognizing the museum as the National Aviation Cadet Museum of the United States, we are paying tribute to these individuals and preserving their commitment to our country.”
The flying cadet and succeeding aviation cadet programs provided pilots, navigators, and bombardiers for our nation’s military. The service and dedication of these aviators helped the United States defeat the enemies of freedom in both World Wars.
Congressman Steve Womack has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011 and serves on the House Appropriations Defense, Military Construction-Veterans Affairs, and Labor-Health and Human Services subcommittees and the House Committee on the Budget.
