Aviation foundation gets collection kept by one of base's first Woman Marines

Griffin, Will Lewis and former Cherry Point commander Tom Braaten joined Amanda Ohlensehlen in looking at the collection last week for the aviation foundation.

“I came here in 1948 and all of those Windsocks were published before I came here,” Griffin said, referring to a collection of base newspapers.

Lewis said Snow’s story of active duty followed by civil service was common in Havelock.

“I think it’s relatable to a lot of people,” he said. “So many people have that story. It’s just like their stories. This is a lady that really cared about what she did.”

Braaten called all the historic documents and photos from the early days of Cherry Point important.

“I think we’ve got a real treasure here,” he said. “The question is how to share it with the public.”
