Jolly Green Giant Association


State: Illinois

Zip: 62269

The Jolly Green Association (JGA), a non-profit U.S. Air Force veterans’ organization, was established in 1969. The term “Jolly Green Giant” was the nickname of the HH-3E Sikorsky helicopter, and its successor the HH-53 “Super Jolly Green Giant,” flown to rescue downed airmen in Southeast Asia. The Jolly Green membership met annually for a reunion and business meeting for 50 years in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. The JGA consists of Air Force veterans, retirees and active duty members from throughout the USAF combat search and rescue (CSAR) and special operations forces (SOF) community. Members must currently be flying or have flown as a crewmember (officer or enlisted) in a Jolly Green unit or a helicopter unit with a primary or secondary mission of rescue.
