This is a place for remembering and giving in the honor of LT Valerie Cappelaere Delaney.
Valerie’s family has suggested that donations be made to Women in Aviation International (WAI), a Non-Profit Organization, in which Val was a member. Val attended WAI annual conferences and also encouraged other female aviators to attend. She valued the comradeship of this organization. Your donation will support the continuation of the LT Valerie Cappelaere Delaney Memorial Scholarship awarded annually to a member of WAI. Please click on the tab above for specific instructions for donations to WAI. If you are viewing this website on a mobile phone, please hover over “Menu” at the top of the screen and the tab will appear on a drop down menu.

Update 19 March: For everyone that was able to join us at the VQ-129 Memorial Service today and for those that wished they could have, thank you so much for your support. Only a fraction of the women that have been touched and inspired by Val were able to be there in person, but just to see what a fraction looks like, see our tribute below.
