After ten years as our Museum’s Programme Manager and Volunteer Coordinator, Jon Ambler has retired. In addition to spearheading a number of museum upgrades and co-creating the popular Aleutian Campaign Exhibit, Jon consistently reached out to the community to inform groups of children as well as adults about the history of west coast military aviation. He taught high school students, elementary school students, welcomed adult organizations into the museum for lectures and guided tours, ensured the participation of the museum in local events, and wrote a book celebrating the history of the Comox Air Force Museum to commemorate the museum’s 30th Anniversary. While we’ll miss him in that role, we’re looking forward to his eventual return as a volunteer.
