About Members

We plan to include information about individual LAA members and other NASA retirees. At each LAA meeting the LAA Membership Chair reads aloud the names of those friends and associates who have passed away since the previous month’s LAA meeting, and also the names of new members who have joined the LAA during the same time period. These names are emailed to the LAA members on the LAA Membership Roster each month. The Membership Chair maintains monthly lists of obits since 2011, and several albums of newspaper-clipping obits dating back to well-before that.
