Last night Jim Demarest hosted a Zoom call for anyone interested in helping with the MoH project. He gave some additional background and previously unpublished details on Steve's mission and why the timing may be right to undertake an upgrade effort. He acknowledged that the campaign will be a "heavy lift" but that plenty of people and organizations (both within and outside of our class) have expressed willingness to help. Even if ultimately unsuccessful, this campaign will help publicize and honor Steve's ultimate sacrifice.

Jim also passed along a few documents related to the effort:
- A bullet background paper summarizing Steve's final mission and the upgrade effort
- A fact sheet giving some additional background and detail
- A scanned copy of the recent Air Force Magazine story about Steve's mission and the upgrade campaign
