The evening was full of surprises, just to name a few:
A memorial service conducted by Doc Flory
for all our brothers who have passed on after they reached state side. There was a special recognition service,
Native American color guard, and special gifts for all. There was a talk given by gifted speaker and author, Ed Ramon and
one of our own gold star
mothers and her family attended and was honored. (Mrs Lahoma Guffey--Jimmy Guffey was a 1968 B-2/501st KIA).
It was topped off with a group picture that
was passed out the next day. At the end of the BBQ
was time to do company business again.
Everyone was pleased with the accommodations at the new resort. There was a golf scramble on Friday, a dinner at the Casino buffet
on Friday night, a dinner at the
ranch on Saturday night and much visitation and pool side fun was enjoyed by all. Debbie Peterson designed nametags with
Vietnam photos on them. She also took pictures of each one in attendance. Many brought memorabilia, pictures and
photo albums to share. Brad Jimerson handed out 101st airborne windshield stickers. John Heil distributed leather keychains that he
the colors of Vietnam. Cat handed out a newly revised 27 page roster that included all 67-72 members.
The casino had wonderful restaurants at
great prices, and
great evening entertainment. They gave us a meeting room free of charge at a savings of over $1000.00. It was a very
nice resort with golf, swimming, fitness room, and of course, gaming machines.
