Rick & Teresa Price, Co-Chairmen
Rick and Teresa Price are both retired United States Naval Officers with combined service of more than 47 years. Rick hails from Texas originally and Teresa was born and grew up in Wahiawa, Hawaii. They both served in Hawaii in the 1980’s and 90’s where they met and married in 1984. They have made Hawaii their home and are very proud supporters of the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum. Over the years they watched the iconic Ford Island Air Control Tower, Hangars and runways deteriorate, and it appeared that the world would lose these historic landmarks of the day that lives in infamy. Four years ago, they were invited to attend the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum annual fundraising gala held each December. At this event they saw first hand the tremendous energy and hard work being put forth by a dedicated group staff members and volunteers to save this historic American Aviation Battleground. They have been involved in the effort ever since.
They own and operate a successful business in Hawaii that also supports the museum and its efforts.
The mission of Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum is to steward America’s first aviation battlefield of World War II sharing the artifacts, personal stories, the impact and response to the December 7, 1941 attack and the Pacific region battles that followed, honoring those who have defended our freedom so we might educate and inspire future generations.
