That seems to be an ongoing topic. As far as I know we are all invited. Kansasvet has info on their group reunion and some cool websites. His is the only organized meeting it seems. The rest of us just seem to like to talk about it.

The August 5-8 2010 reunion in Dallas is for everyone! I signed the contract with the hotel and will be lining speakers.

There will be a cash bar reception on the 5th. We will have snacks, you buy the drinks. This will be a good time to see others you served with.

"First to fight!" man I've been looking for this type of "home" 4 ever. your post helped lock in the deal. the "boots" story and the blown up med vehicles and Lt. of scouts and so forth almost made ..... well I was soooo happy , I DID take a S@#!..I knew a medic from engr bat. a short bro. ,real dark, stocky, used to say he was coming frm Rngr. Bat @ hunter. for some reason the name Nate keeps poppin up but im not sure. ring any bells?Did you ever do a pitcher and slice at the mini px? or join that fake boxing team (for a month) or so. or see the girl in the E club that also used to run around the parade field track...she was gorgeous and the first I saw her she stared me down @ the E club bar then when I got the balls to talk to her I saw she had one leg? It was cool but I wasnt quite ready for that so it scared me a little.
