585th Reunion 2012, NEW ORLEANS,LA

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 116 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 Breland & Gayle Clement 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 2014.  I know I am.

Our Guest Speaker this year was Quang Nguyen who has sent back the following email to all members of the 585th Engr Co


Good morning 585th members and families,

Mai and I got home well and fine last night.

We want to take a moment to thank you all for giving us the opportunity to "Thank You" for your service to my old nation and your service to our great Nation.
Your kindness and gifts given to Mai and me on Sunday are much appreciated, but the one gift that we, as a family, will always keep in our hearts is the gift of freedom we were starving for many years ago.   None of us can ever repay you for your sacrifice, but we can promise to be good citizens and add more to this Land.

I hope to hear more from you in the future, my Founders.
"Love you long time" and God Bless,
PS.  My contact information below is always available for you all.
