Our Historian Shirley Eldringoff  has taken all of the original, on hand 6th Weather Squadron (Mobile)'s artifacts in paperform, and compiled, scanned and burned the information on CDs. Now you can buy these CDs for use on your computer to look at, at your leisure, for your pleasure, research or just to satisfy your curiosity about the happenings and history of 6th Weather. To identify the contents of each CD, Shirley cataloged each artifact in chronological order by the span of years. The CDs are available for member purchase at $1.50 each including shipping.
