It is 1 short month away for our reunion and we are still very short of our regular turnout. If you are holding off now is the time to get er done.
I have made arrangements for a friend of mine Captain Randy Cash RET. Navy Chaplin to be our guest speaker for our dinner Sat night. He was our Dept. Adjunct for the North Carolina American Legion for years and last year moved to San Diego to teach collage there. I hope you will welcome him and enjoy his speech.

We only have 2 1/2 months before we can raise our glass and toast each other. I for one am looking forward to it. We have not had a reunion since 2018 due to Covid 19. At our ages that is not good. I hope that everyone if possible are planning on attending, as this may be our last one or maybe we will do something different in the future. If you want to part of the decision making than you MUST attend.
I am not getting a lot of response for attending. So far I have 20 people that have returned the registration and paid. That is a far cry from our previous reunions. I know some of you have stated that you will attend, if that is you, please get er done. I have downgraded our room count to 25 per night, from 50 a night. If we do not get more people we may not be able to have our dinners as planned. So PLEASE pass the word and lets make this reunion the best ever.
