Williams Field Arizona

I wanted to let anyone interested in Williams Field in Arizona know that the authority that runs Williams Gateway Airport is trying to change the name to Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. It is stirring quite a controversy here in Arizona. It is felt that the history and heritage of the Williams name will be lost. If you have an opinion about this please contact preservewilliamsheritage@flywga.org or call the airport at (480) 988-7600.
I hope it is all right to post this here. My father trained at Williams during WWII. And judging by his class book he had great feeling for his time here.
I just wanted to let people with an interest in this subject know.
Thank you     Pam

    Obviously, it did not do much good.
