THE CATERPILLAR CLUB

The Caterpillar Club was formed in 1922 after Lt. Harris bailed out of an airplane over Dayton, Ohio. Since that time, thousands of airmen, flyers and passengers have enrolled in this organization. We have no dues, and the initiation fee is nominal ($10). An attempt was made to formally organize the Club into chapters in 1943, and again after the war in 1947. This takes a lot of effort, and although the club is incorporated and Caterpillar Club is copyrighted, the dedicated interest after the war was not there.

The Caterpillar Association was not formed until sometime in 1983. Yet, they try to claim the laurels of the long history of Club.

Among the many Caterpillars who carry or carried Caterpillar Club membership cards are former President George Bush, General Doolittle, and Colonel Lindbergh, to name a few. Whereas the Club requires some documentation as to the authenticity of the jump before a card is issued (military orders, reports and/or newspaper accounts), the Caterpillar Association sells membership cards without restriction for $3 each.

The above not to detract from some of the men within the Association who hope to have an organized group where commanders are elected, dues are charged, and financial reports are given.

Thank you for your interest in the Caterpillar Club. If there is any way I may be of further assistance please feel free to contact me at the following address:
