DESERT STORM REUNION

Post by FA1SGret » Tue Jul 07, 2009 11:11 pm

Anyone interested? 2009 or 2010? Start small ... two or 10, then see where it leads? I'm a couple of beers into this, but I think its a good idea.

Anyone else?

When?
I believe that depends more on the working folks. A weekend? Could do it on the day of the surrender, or the day of the start of the war, that would be the airwar, or the day of the first deployment, or just any day.

Where?
Central location, someplace we can do tours, someplace out of the way?

Who?
Any Desert Storm veteran or family member?

How?
Pick a spot, talk to the facility manager, and go from there.

I've never organized anything like this so I really don't know the specifics that need worked out.

It would be nice but with the economy...I mean lack of economy the way it is I couldn't afford it unless I bought a winning scratch off ticket or won the lottery sometime soon. Its all I can do just to stay above the cost of living.

I think that applys to a lot of folks. I didn't even think of the financial aspects when I posted this.

Sounds like a great idea to me. Just let me know the time and place and I will do my best to be there. Would be great to meet fellow Desert Storm Vets and swap stories.

"re-union" from those on the board here? Sounds like a nice idea, but wouldn't necessarily be a "re-union" if noone here knew each other then... just being the invaritable thorn in the blanket that I am, ya know?

reunion, gathering... toMAYto, toMAHto... it's all good. Is it even something that is going to be workable for anyone? I have had a couple more "reunions" than maybe I should have. Has anyone else kept in touch with buddies from then?

I have been looking for "buddies" from then and have found a few but I don't really keep in touch. I guess that part of it is just plain and simple laziness.
