At Saturday's USO Show fundraiser, members of the Hammond Airshow Foundation announced the 2018 Freedom Then and Now Airshow is dedicated to the memory of Frank van Mullem. Mayor Pete Panepinto and David Lobue made the announcement before a crowd of almost 400 guests. Mr. van Mullem was instrumental in helping make the return of the airshow to the Hammond community a reality, and the Hammond Airshow Foundation Board felt this a fitting tribute honoring his dedication to the airshow and the community.
