From the Blue Ghosts Association President
As the holiday season approaches, I think it always a good time to reflect back, not only on the past year with all of the great freedoms our country provides us, but also of the friendships we have forged over the years.
Most of us Blueghosters began our friendships in the less than desirable location of South Viet Nam, and knew each other for only as long as our tours had us co-located, which could have been only a couple of months, or a couple of years. Even though most all of us were not connected for many years, we’ve kindled our friendship over the internet, thru phone calls, an occasional letter, and at the various reunions, which is pretty remarkable given our geographic dispersion.
As we move forward into the New Year, Mary and I look forward to the reunion in Louisville, KY, April 4th -April 6th. Jim Fentress and Jack Shrode are coordinating it for us, and it looks like a great place. We have not been to Louisville, but have heard great things about it. For us, the best part of the trip is to see all of our friends again, and catch up on the conversations we left off when we exfilled LZ Branson.
Please think of those whom are deployed, and their families. We also have other members who have passed on, leaving loved ones who are also dear to us. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers as well.
Mary and I hope you had a very Merry Christmas and wish you a healthy and fun filled New Year.
See you in Louisville, KY !
