March 2000 Newsletter
As we look forward to our reunion we also remember those who were an important part of our lives. This newsletter will honor the friends that we will dearly miss. What is mentioned in this letter is only a small part of what these men meant to us individually. Memories, not mentioned here, become our personal remember-ances. They will be missed by all of us who shared our early experiences with Capt. Bill Oliver and Pete Frye. The parties, the huts, the stories, the experiences have been individually recorded, each in our own way.
The reunion is shaping up to be a most enjoyable affair, and we are optimistic that we will have many of our squadron mates in attendance. The Business Meeting will be held on the Thursday of our arrival at 2000 hours. I will have an agenda available at the meeting and Phil C. says that the bar will be open. After a few pops it should prove to be very interesting. Those unable to attend should forward their thoughts, suggestions and hopes to an ambassador of your choice and let us know what path you think our association should follow. We have accomplished much over the past couple of years and things can only get better through your participation.
See you in Norfolk! Zeke.
