Hello to all,
I'm sorry that I wasn't able to make it to the reunion. I had been down in Bama as the tornadoes struck to make sure that all was well with my family in Phenix City.

The pictures looked great. All of you all looked the same with the exception of a few gray hairs here and there. I wished that I could have been there. I'm quite sure more pictures will show up here. Anyway, everyone take care and hopefully there will be another next year. Take care and be safe to all.

Ervin,

We missed seeing you too. Several others had to miss also because of family obligations, work, weddings, etc.

Don't know when we'll have another reunion, but I'm sure folks will do some visiting around the country while traveling. I might travel some in 2012 or 2013, and if I'm near Norfolk I'll say "Howdy".

BTW, I heard from Harold "Sugar Bear" Forte on Saturday. He's doing well, and lives near the Red River Army Depot, TX.

Later,


J.P.

Ervin, We sure would have loved to have you there with us. Your ears should have burnt the entire length of the reunion. You were "renown" - all of it was great and wonderful! If you're ever in the PA area and don't stop in, I'll be forever crushed!!! We did decide it'd been far too long for us not to all get back together.

One final thought on the best three days in 2011! Thanks so much again to J.P. for all the "love" he put into making it truly an event to remember. Thanks to everyone who jumped right in and got things done at all the events. AND thanks to all who took the time, made the trip, or were there with us in spirit! I miss you all already!

Thanks to "J.P" for a wonderful reunion, and in many ways a trip down Memory Lane."

I really appreciated all the activities with opportunities built in to sit and chat.

A special word of "Thanks" to Maxwell AFB, and the Base Security Forces for a great peek into the way things are conducted today. My hat is off to the men and women of our modern security forces for the great job they are doing and for the dedication they have to the task they have been given.

I am extremely proud to have served alongside you all, and look forward to another reunion soon.
