WHY REUNIONS MATTER
CLICK HERE FOR SPECIAL ARTICLE

THE PURPOSE OF AFEES

The purpose of the AFEES is to encourage airmen who were aided by resistance organizations or patriotic nationals of foreign countries to continue friendships with those who helped them. Thousands of brave, ordinary people in the occupied countries took extraordinary risks at huge cost to help these airmen. Further,  to commemorate, remember and honor all those who were involved in escaping and evading, both the escapers and their helpers, and to get people together who feel the same way so that we may perpetuate the principles the original members stood for. This includes their descendants and anyone who is or has been associated with them in some way and want to continue the tradition.

This organization includes the airmen and their families, and people who directly aided the airmen and their families, and friends.

"Our organization perpetuates the close bond that exists between airmen forced down and the resistance people who made our evasion possible at great risk to themselves and their families"  Larry Grauerholz

Ralph Patton was one of the founders of AFEES in 1961 MORE ABOUT RALPH PATTON

It is with much sorrow that we report that Dick Smith died on March 29, 2013. Dick was a past President of AFEES, and was a guiding force for many years. We will miss him.
