585th Reunion 2008, Kissimmee, FL

Question - Why do we dress up for dinner is usually brought up at each reunion.  Answer - We don't dress up for the dinner.  We dress up for the Memorial Service to honor and pay our respects  for our brothers who were killed in action and those that have since passed.


Question - What does the registration fee cover - Since we are non-profit (there are no dues), It covers our main meal, our pizza night, all snacks and the bar.  In all fairness it is only right that everyone that attends the reunion and par-takes in the bar, pizza, snacks and dinner, register to cover the cost


Another reunion has come to a close.  We had 109 registered members, families and guests. Registered members were from all years.  Speaking on behalf of all those in attendance, I want to give a "Hearty Thank You" to Ken Seymour and all those that pitched in, to make this reunion such a success.

The only disappointment I can think of, is there is never enough time in the day to spend time with everyone.  I hope all had a great time and are looking forward to October 2009.  I know I am.
