Liberty Chapter

    Nestled between New York's Statue of Liberty and Philadelphia's Liberty Bell is Joint Base McGuire, Dix, Lakehurst (JBMDL) formerly McGuire Air Force Base, home of the PLA's Liberty Chapter. Formed in August 1999, we received our charter in November 1999. Liberty Chapter is named not just because of the proximity to two of our nation's most identifiable landmarks, but for the liberty represented by the Flag of the United States of America, the first stated core value of our association. Our membership includes Active duty, Reserve, and Retired, C-17, C-47, C-130, C-133, C-141 and C-5 Loadmasters!                   

    We welcome all PLA members in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania who want to belong to a local chapter but don't have one near them. We would love to have you join our organization and make it even better!  We have our own web site and are exploring avenues to make the Liberty Chapter a PLA “house-hold name”!
