Appallingly news reached us last night about the sudden death of the newly appointed chairman of the Friends of the Airborne Museum Alex Koning.
Alex had begun a difficult task: the administrative reform of the association. A task he has picked up energetically and with an open mind, but could not finish.
Alex King ran annually emphatically hot for the Airborne Commemoration in Oosterbeek. In his jeep he was driving around like war veterans or women who had to go through for The Star Sisters of The Andrews Sisters. Alex has played a major role in our Thank You Mister Veteran event in 2014.
