On Aug. 25 Special Chair, H.E. Blaise Cherif, Ambassador of Republic of Guinea; World Ebony Network Board Chairman, Col. US Army (Ret) Frank E. Underwood, and many distinguished guests gathered at the Women’s National Democratic Club to celebrate the 87th birthday of Ambassador Haley and to summon people of African ancestry to find their identity and rebuild a stronger black family. A moment of levity among the many tributes and presentation of the Ambassador George W. Haley Inaugural Award for distinguished service was that the ambassador and his wife Doris share the same birthday although she playfully chides that it was a different year.

George W. Haley spent three years in the United States Air Force during World War II, but he is not yet registered in our nation's WWII Registry. He should be registered, and I want to help him get this to happen.
If I had an email or street address for him, I would be pleased to contact him direct. Can you refer this message to him or to a friend of his. Thanks.

I'm proud to say that I served with George Haley at the US Information Agency in the 1980s.
I would like to extent belated congratulations to him for his life long contributions to our county and for the many kindnesses he extended to me during our association.
