10/17/2012 - DAYTON, Ohio -- 88th Air Base Wing Vice Commander Col. Daniel Semsel presented Springboro resident Bill Denlinger with the Team Wright-Patt "Volunteer of the Quarter" award for the third quarter of 2012 on Oct. 11.

Denlinger began volunteering in the museum's Restoration Division in 1998 and has accumulated 6,665 hours of service. He has used his talent as a draftsman to produce superb machine drawings, which are then used by the restoration machinist to recreate aircraft parts from the past. His projects have included drawings for missing parts from the P-47 Thunderbolt gun mount assembly, the A-1H Skyraider and the B-17F Memphis Belle. In addition, he recently has provided his drafting skills for designs to help build structures to display aircraft engines in the museum galleries.

More than 500 people volunteer at the museum in nearly every division and activity. For more information about volunteering, please visit www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/volunteer/.
