This information request was recently received from Bill Leech:
trying to get any contact info on the late John Regan. It's tied to a post-convention idea. Dick
Borrelli says John's wife died first before him and he is estranged from his
children. There is no known further contact info.
Could you, if possible, probe the REPA membership to see if anyone has ANY other contact info about John or his children?
Thank you, Bill Leech

The 9th Annual EAL Hall of Fame Honoring Eastern
Captain John Halliburton
Our next EAL Radio Show, Episode 477 on Monday, September 28, 2020 at 7:00 P.M. EDT is our 9th Annual EAL Radio Show Hall of Fame. We present this Hall of Fame honor to mark an achievement or give recognition to the recipient for their outstanding contribution to the Eastern Family. See our other Hall of Fame Recipients...
This year, we are honoring Captain John Halliburton, an Eastern Pilot and well known to many Eastern employees. John was a great friend of the Eastern Family and though we prefer, of course, to give an award to the recipient in person to thank and congratulate them for their outstanding achievement, unfortunately, John's award will be given posthumously.
This award extends our deepest gratitude to show that we will never forget Captain John's accomplishments on behalf of the Eastern Family. John had a wonderful tenure with Eastern Airlines and our Hosts will discuss his many accomplishments while working for Eastern Airlines.
We look forward to September 28, 2020 to have you join Neal and our hosts as we honor Eastern Captain John Halliburton. Our Call-in number to our program is 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. EDT. Please, those that do call in but want to listen, mute your phone to avoid any background noises. You may also use your computer to hear us live by going to our Blog Talk website: www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie as we depart the gate.

“EAL Tribute to Women in
World War I and II”
Our next EAL Radio Show program is scheduled for Monday, October 12, 2020 Episode 478 as the EAL Radio Show gives “Tribute to Women in World War I and II.” We are happy to share our program and give honors to all the women who came forth and joined up in the country’s pursuit of happiness and peace. Our broadcast airs at 7:00 P. M. EDT.
During World War I, nursing was the only service option permitted for women in the United States Navy before World War II. The role of women in the Navy broadened in 1916 with the passage of Public Law 241, which stated that any U.S. citizen could serve in the Navy.
Days following the Pearl Harbor attacks of December 7, 1941, the Navy began debating the integration of women in the Navy. The newly created War Manpower Commission declared itself unable to meet projected naval expansion and discovered that the Navy needed women to assist in the war.
Join us Monday, October 12, 2020 to hear our Hosts honor the ways that the Waves assisted the country during both World War I and II. Our Call-in number to our program is 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. EDT. Please, those that do call in but want to listen, mute your phone to avoid any background noises. You may also use your computer to hear us live by going to our Blog Talk website: www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie as we depart the gate.
