Yes, I attended yesterday's ceremony commemorating Bud Marquis' heroic action in 1972. It was a proud (and deserved) moment for him and his family and was attended by a number of survivors and family members of both survivors and those who died in the crash. I had the opportunity to speak with a couple of the survivors and it was a satisfying emotional experience. There is an article in today's (12/4/2007) Miami Herald about the ceremony. The Herald webpage is http://www.herald.com
There will be a memorial ceremony conducted on Dec. 29, 2007, by the Airboat Association of Florida. The details are listed above in a message from Grant Dunaway responding to Kathy de la Rosa (sister-in-law of Lily Infantino).
