Dear Fellow Members & Supporters,

     The Norton-March Aircrew Association, Inc., dba Norton-March Alumni Association (NMAA) was registered and incorporated in California in 2015 as a non-profit 501(c)3 Military Veterans charitable organization. NMAA was established in 2015 to foster relationship among members, and provide assistance to military and veterans organizations or possibly needy individual veterans. We honor the dedication and duty of former and current Military and Civilian Alumni from those who served at two of the U.S. Air Forces' most Historical Bases, Norton AFB, CA through its closure in 1992 and March AFB/ARB, CA past and present. The Norton-March Alumni Association was initially established by former members of the 445 MAW and 452 AMW. The Association is open to any and all of those who served at Norton & March over the years, whether you were Active or Reserve, Aircrew or Support, Military or Civilian. It is also open to any non-alumni Members or Businesses who would like to support us and our interests.

      There have been several organized get-togethers BBQ-Cookouts, even Breakfast or Lunches at local restaurants over the years since the mid 1990's. However a more formal Reunion was initiated in 2012. We have made the commitment starting in 2015 to continue to bring former and current members together with a more formal Bi-Annual Reunion (social gathering) every two years, as well as off-year BBQs, picnics, Get-togethers and supporting the Air Shows. Our objectives are to support and help rekindle friendships with fellow friends and/or personnel you have served with. We have had formal Reunions in 2012 - 2015 - 2017 - 2021, and are scheduled to have one in the Fall of 2023.

      As mentioned above, we also organized ourselves as a Veterans Charitable organization. Our additional mission developed into charitable organization to assist other Military or Veterans organizations as well as needy individual military personnel and their families. Your support in joining as a member goes a long way to also assist us in helping them. Your additional 'Tax-free' donations are always appreciated. Every year during the Christmas Holidays, we donate via Operation Warm Heart at March ARB to financilally challenged Airmen and their families.Some $10,000.00 have been donated by the Norton-March Alumnin Association since 2016, and thanks to your donations, has become its major contributor.

      We hope that you will join us at the upcoming 2023 Bi-Annual Reunion in the Fall. When it is highlighted, please see the information on the Reunion pages for more detailed information. More downloadable information is on our main secured web-site at The 2023 Reunion is being held in October, 2023 and includes various fun event options over three days to bring us all together again, rekindle friendships or make new ones. Our Reunions always merge in with a monthly UTA, in order for the NMAA to be an ongoing support vehicle for the 452nd AMW and other organizations, especially for those Military and Civilian members that are still out there pounding the ramp and flying round the clock manning or supporting the Missions. We also have socials/BBQs in the off-years on-base in support of current March members who are still serving.

      Thank you for your support and hope you can come out and enjoy yourself at our Reunions and Off-year get together.
