BUY AN ENGRAVED BRICK
Click here for the order form to purchase an engraved brick at the Veterans Memorial at the Auburn Airport. Or call AAA Secretary, Joanie Mooneyham, for information. (530) 401-0595.
Sculptor Doug Van Howd, a pilot himself, created this impressive artwork installed at the Auburn Municipal Airport. WWII Triple Ace Col. Clarence "Bud" Anderson is depicted in the piece, but the installation is a tribute to all veterans. You can purchase a brick and have it engraved in honor of someone you'd like to recognize. Originally, brick sales contributed to funding the sculpture. Col. Anderson has graciously allowed AAA to collect additional proceeds to go into the endowment fund in his name.
