John - where are you getting your information?
At 87 Gen Yeager still spends at least 50% of his time volunteering - down-syndrome folks, fish-habitat, conservation, aviation education, scholarships.

Virgin American has tried to get away with using several famous people's names without compensating them. Why should anyone else, including Virgin, making billions, reap the rewards of a name of someone who risked death often to keep the freedoms we all now enjoy?

To learn more about General Yeager's history which is far more than many people know, please go to www.chuckyeager.com and you will see how much he does for others. At EIGHTY-SEVEN!!!
