James C. Wingate To Be Inducted Into the DUSTOFF Hall of Fame

The DUSTOFF Executive Council is honored to announce the induction of LTC (retired) James C. Wingate into the DUSTOFF Hall of Fame. After successful consideration by the DUSTOFF Executive Council and having more than 2/3rds of the votes cast in the election that ended 31 October 2014, Jim Wingate will be inducted into the DUSTOFF Hall of Fame on 28 March 2015 during the 2015 DUSTOFF Reunion. The induction ceremony will be held at 1430 hours that day at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel, Nashville, TN in the Governor’s Chambers Rooms D and E. Congratulations Jim and many thanks for your life-long dedication to serving DUSTOFF and our Army.


36th Annual Reunion Registration OPEN!

Registration for the 36th DUSTOFF Reunion is now available in the Reunion section of this site. You may register using a credit card with our secure form or print the registration form and mail it along with a check.

The next DUSTOFF Association Annual Reunion is scheduled for 26-29 Mar 15 in Nashville, TN at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. We are deeply supported by and embedded with the Army Aviation Association Quad-A Summit. This year’s reunion immediately precedes this major event.

Your Executive Council has worked hard to prepare this year’s reunion. They recognize costs are about 25% higher than last year; that’s the price of admission in larger venues. Quad-A has assisted with their leverage in terms of helping us get great meeting venues and keeping costs as low as possible.

We look forward to seeing you all in Nashville!



Aeromedical Evacuation Campaign Plan 2020

Aeromedical Evacuation Campaign Plan 2020

Aeromedical Evacuation (AE) is a strategic and complex DoD mission that provides a pivotal service to the success of every DoD operational endeavor. At its core, the AE system is comprised of two distinct components: Intra-Theater AE and Inter-Theater AE. Within this system, the Army remains the sole DoD component with dedicated aircraft and crews to perform AE. [Read the whole Plan]

Dedication Of the LTC Cephus Lee Roupe Memorial Bridge

On 19 Sep 14 a State Route 18 bridge over Fish Creek in New Freeport Township, Greene County in south western Pennsylvania was named in honor of the late LTC (R) Cephus Lee Roupe, MSC. LTC Roup's career spanned 36 years of enlisted, warrant, and MSC officer service and he leaves a legacy of passion and excellence that is the embodiment of our Army Values.

It was a momentous tour with many saved lives and many heroic actions on the part of these proud DUSTOFF Warriors. Dan and Suzie met with the unit on 27 August, at their hangar to welcome them home, honor two Difference Makers, and honor the leaders of the Family Readiness Group.
