If you served in the US Navy, specifically Patrol Squadron 741 or Patrol Squadron 16, during the years 1948-1960, have I got a "bash" for you!
GRAND REUNION 2000(OR2K) is being planned for May 19, 20, 21, 2000. It will be held in Jacksonville, Florida and promises to be the biggest, best reunion ever. Please, if you plan to attend, bring any memorabilia that you'd like to share(photos, cruisebooks, stories, etc). Enclosed is a questionnaire that we'd like you to send us* We will be sending out information sheets very early in 2000, so don't think we've forgotten you*
This is a chance (perhaps the last, since none of us are getting any younger) to see old buddies, swap "war" stories and renew old friendships and, sadly, to remember those who are no longer with us* Since our information is available to all members of VP-741/16, if there is someone you'd like to know about, perhaps we can help now, or maybe you know someone that is deceased, we'd like to know.
Please confirm that you are/are not "our guy", so we can update our files' If you are our guy, please send the questionnaire backbit you are not our guy, please let us know that also*
Thank you, and we hope to hear from you soon...
