DALLAS, MAY 16, 2006 – Vought Aircraft Industries, Inc. announced today that it has raised $105,188 to date for the annual March of Dimes WalkAmerica campaign. Vought registered 303 walkers companywide for the WalkAmerica events that took place April 23, April 29 and May 6 in various locations across the country.
