No, I’m not a hero. But I served in the company of heroes.

– Jim Jannette (PAO 78-82)

“No, I’m not a hero. But I served in the company of heroes,” so recalls one of the survivors of Easy Company, from the Band of Brothers, HBO’s tribute to the Army’s Airborne D-Day troops. I too served in the company of heroes. Among them were Norm Lowry, Willie Mays, “Pete” Peterson and Mark Melancon. But I cannot think of the dark days without seeing the bright smiles. I cannot remember their loss without realizing their contribution. They sacrificed themselves for the American spirit while living the Thunderbird dream. The dread of the time blows behind me and in its place is the realization that we were all better for having them. God bless you my brother birds…”

“Thank you again for giving me the Honor to represent you, the Thunderbirds!”

– Steve “Jethro” Chealander TBAA Chairman
Left Wing/Narrator (1981-84)

Boss “Brick” Caldwell said in his comments in this ThunderRolls that this is a great time to be a Thunderbird, and I echo that sentiment. Brick, Jethro, the 2002 Team and the TBAA board are totally aligned on all of these projects and goals. We are committed to the reaffirmation of “Once a Thunderbird, Always a Thunderbird” and establishing the permanent thought and attitude that “We are the Thunderbirds”, one Team consisting of those that wear the patch now and those that wore the patch then!
