Congratulations to our 2018 Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame Nominees:
Gerald Baliles, Former Governor of Virginia
In 1986, under Governor Baliles’ leadership, the Virginia General Assembly passed what was until then the largest transportation funding package in Virginia history. While much of the media attention at that time focused on the highway portion of the package, it also included important funding for airports throughout the Commonwealth.
Ronald L. Gatewood, Colonel USMC (Retired)
From 1964 to 1991, Ron Gatewood served in the United States Marine Corps as a Naval aviator, retiring as a Colonel. Following his final assignment at the Pentagon, Ron settled in Warrenton, Virginia, and has remained a resident of Fauquier County for the last 35 years.
Evelyn Marshall began her career of service on her 20th birthday, when she was sworn into the U.S. Naval Reserves as a Navy Wave in World War II.
