  1. The plaque reads as follows:

    Presented to
    M.F. “Kirby” Kirby
    The Original “Head Headhunter”
    4 March 2000
    by the
    80th Fighter Squadron HEADHUNTERS Association

    In recognition of, and appreciation for, his total devotion and dedication
    to his beloved 80th Fighter Squadron for over 56 years. Without his initiative, hard work, and sacrifice there would be no HEADHUNTER Association today.
    “Thanks” sounds so inadequate, but not when it comes from all our hearts.
    “Thanks, Kirby, for all you’ve given us–
    We owe it all to you!”
