  2. How do I join the Caribou Association? Back to the FAQ Contents
    If you were an Air Force C-7A crewmember, mechanic, or anyone else who worked to further the mission of the Air Force C-7A, you are eligible to pay your "Caribou Tax" and join.  The "tax" is $10.00 per year, but many find that paying for several years in advance is more convenient.  Our Treasurer has the technology to accurately track tax payments.  Checks should be made out to The Caribou Association and sent to:

    Mike Murphy

  6. Why am I getting viruses from the webmaster? Back to the FAQ Contents There have been a spate of virus reports from members.  The messages containing the viruses may show them having been sent by webmaster@C-7ACaribou.com, other official addresses, or addresses you don't recognize at all.  Most of these have been caused by viruses.  First of all, do a complete scan for viruses on your own machine.  If you don't have an anti-virus program, please check this discussion of viruses and firewalls and why it is essential to have virus protection.
