A Personal Note From ANN's Jim Campbell to the ANN/Airborne/Aero-TV Family

Hi Folks... I thought a personal note might be just the way to start a process with you all that should result in something quite extraordinary.

We won the battle… but have yet to win the war… So little has changed! So much must yet be done!
