On June 4, 5, 6 2009 Co A 1/501st 67 to 72 Vietnam Veteran’s held their 2nd annual two year Reunion in Clarksville , Tn . I would like to thank the Reunion Committee (Jack Clarkin and his wife Alice, Larry Miller and his wife Betty, Floyd Abbott and his wife Jan) for a job well done in planning this Reunion and making it a great success. Also special thanks go out to Roger Queen and his wife Janice with help planning the Ft Campbell Tour.
The Reunion started out with registration Thursday morning June 4th with 34 Brothers registering during the day. There were a total of 64 (34 Brothers and 30 guests) that attended the Reunion. Thursday evening was spent in the hospitality room socializing, eating finger food, looking at pictures and watching CD picture slide shows. On Friday June 5th we took a bus to Ft Campbell and toured the Engagement Skills Trainer (shot laser weapons at simulated targets), toured the 101st Museum, and ate at the 101st Mess Hall with the troops. Friday evening was free time Saturday evening June 6th we had our banquet and meeting to plan our next reunion in 2011. The rest of the evening was spent socializing and saying our good byes.
It was decided to have the 2011 Reunion in Washington DC at the Wall. It’s going to take a lot of work and money to have the reunion in DC but with the help of all of you I feel through donations and fund raisers over the next 2 years we can keep the cost down so that everyone can afford to attend. I’ll be doing another Reunion Album to post on the Geronimo Site, so send me your pictures. We also had a “Touching Moment” at the reunion on Thursday and Saturday that you might want to check out, by clicking on the following “url”
“Again” I would like to thank the Reunion Committee for a job well done and thank everyone that attended the reunion for coming. Hope to see you all at the 2011 Reunion.
