There were cowboys, Indians, live Western Music and best of all a real Chuckwagon and the best darn steak you ever tasted, served from the chuckwagon with a real cowboy meal. Even the dessert was cooked in a cast iron dutch oven over hot coals and all washed down with real cowboy coffee.

 

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
it 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 handbeaded with
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.

 

Many of your B-2/501st comrades generously donated funds so that no one who WANTED to attend would have to miss out on this great event!

Together then ~ Together now!
