Congratulation Comments To Captain Neal

1. Captain Neal,

Don and I send you our sincere congratulations and best wishes on this honor into the Retired Eastern Pilots Association, Hall of Fame. We are so thrilled and excited for you and hope we can be there in person to see this honor given to you on September 6, 2018.

Your contributions to Eastern Airlines not only to REPA for all you have done as a Member, REPArtee Editor, WebMaster, etc., but for your constant dedication and unselfish efforts to keep the Eastern Legacy out in the public eye with the Radio Voice of Eastern Airlines. Your unending giving of your time, consumed weekly into the producing and directing of the wonderful scripts you prepare each week for the last 8 years of the EAL Radio Show is highly commendable. You have this broadcast for and about Eastern and the Eastern family.


This honor is so well deserved and a long time coming. Again, we thank REPA for this honor they bestowed to you.

Kudos, Neal and may God keep you safe and well! We love you Eastern!

Dorothy and Don

Neal,

I would like to add my voice to what Dorothy and Don have stated. You have kept the Eastern legacy alive and well, which clearly shows the dramatic negative impact of what happened to our once beloved, unique airline.

Thank you so much.
 
Your friend,

George

Thank you George, but it has been the combined work of so many great Eastern people. like you, that keeps Eastern in the minds of millions that have known her. With REPA, as editor, I had the help of anEastern great, John Ingle, who I have talked about on our radio show. Now there's a true deserved  person of any Hall of Fame Award. And, be the first to know, he will go in the Radio Show's Hall of Fame in September. George, thanks for adding so much to our show and I hope you will have a book ready very soon.

Neal

My work has been for Eastern family and friends like you, Normajean. I appreciate your kind words.  Nearly eight years of wonderful Eastern talk. I wish I had enough years left for eight more.  Thanks for the support you give the Radio Show and Hosts.  It's all about Eastern love.


Neal

Capt. Holland, on Hall of Fame nomination.

I'll be there for sure to see the induction in Charleston. For sure, you have given to Eastern and then REPA many a year. Richly deserved.

I also was interested to read that the name Eastern is coming back again. Will anxiously follow that story. When the previous Eastern (not the original one!) was operating, Georgia State University used them as a charter. Bill and I travel with the teams on occasion, and I had wanted to fly Eastern on one of their trips, but it never worked out before it folded again.

See you in Charleston, and again, Congratulations Su
