"Bleeding Sky" The story of Captain Fletcher Adams and the 357th FG

Additional information:

People traveling from out of state will need to arrive ahead of time,
so I am asking them to arrive on Friday 23rd, if possible. Our suggestion
would be to have the early arrivers to be in Ida on Friday 23, July in the
early afternoon. For these out of towners, we will have a Louisiana Catfish
dinner with all the trimmings, which will be served at the Ida Community
Center located at Hwy. 71 and Cedar Lane. I wanted this gathering to be
available for all who would enjoy meeting and greeting on the night before
the dedication.   
Attendees who will need a hotel reservations should let me know ahead of
time and I will arrange with some of the hotels to block out rooms for them.
