Captain Robert L. Martin Fundraising

Capt RLM Barometer - 4-12-22

Be a part of history.  Honor and preserve the important legacy of Dubuque, Iowa native, veteran and hero, Captain Robert L. Martin, a decorated Tuskegee Airman fighter pilot.  Join us to complete the mission to commemorate Captain Martin's legacy. The mission includes naming the terminal building at the Dubuque Regional Airport (KDBQ) after Captain Martin and erecting memorial signage, an honorary plaque, and educational materials, including a video loop, with recognition of major donors.

The estimated cost to complete this mission is $100,000.  Due to federal regulations, the airport cannot use their funds on this project.  Therefore, donations are required for this effort.

We want to include your name in the recognition of major donors, but any contribution will make you a part of honoring and commemorating the legacy of Captain Robert L. Martin, a trailblazer in the skies and a sentinel for the rights and liberties of all. Donate to be a part of this history and memorialize Captain Martin's important legacy.

Donations can be made to “Commemorate Captain Robert L. Martin”, which is a recognized federal IRC 501(c)(3) non-profit  retroactive to October, 6, 2020;   The state of Iowa also recognizes the organization as a non-profit.
