Attendees at the Las Vegas Reunion

Marshall Kornblatt, Ed Fickes, Ken Baldwin, Dennis Mitzner, Harry White (host), Jerry Sword, Ken Quimby, Steve Gerber, Tom Jameson, Tom Carroll and Terry Brown in Las Vegas on 3Oct18. Looking out from the back of Harry’s home.

To all:

Janelle and I want to thank those, that were able to attend, for making this one of the most fun and memorable reunions we’ve had in my fifty-one years of knowing you. Albeit, some of the early ones I don’t remember too much, but that loss was self-inflicted.

We are so fortunate to have friends like you, and I only ask that God keeps us healthy and safe for the future, until our next reunion.

I want to thank Terry for having the idea of getting together in Las Vegas and planting the seed.

And we can’t forget Harry and Jeanie White for their hospitality and help in putting this reunion together for us. Thanks, Harry.

I know it is only October, but Costco already has Christmas trees up for sale, so Janelle and I wish you a premature though heartfelt Happy Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.

God Bless America,


Det K Kamaksan

In May of this year we had a reunion of several Det K Kamaksan vets who served together 1978-79. The Field Station Korea commander and staff came up to open the gates for us (Det is dormant but still in US inventory right now).  We may do another one next year and try to get in vets from the other Dets (J and L).

Rendezvous with Destiny


Can you put a feeler out to the COMSECLIGHT and any other ASA sites you have access to that I'm looking to get some 406th RRD, 265th RRC and 311th MI Bn to attend the 101st Airborne 74th Reunion in Colorado Springs 21-25 August 2019.  If we get enough attending - maybe - just maybe we can set up our own reception room and sit around and tell war stories.  Vietnam and of course Ft Campbell...  Yep, I'm on the reunion committee. 


My email is: MTNLOADER@Q.COM if any one wants more information about the 101st Airborne Division reunion in Colorado Springs, 21-25 August 2019.

2019 ASA Chitose Reunion

To the Chitose group:

  I am trying to get a feel for how many are planning to attend the reunion this September on Cape Cod.

  It will be September 25th-29th at the Cape Resort & Conference Center in Hyannis, Mass.

  Can you please respond if you do intend to make it there, whether you will be accompanied, and whether you plan to be attending the banquet on Saturday night.

  Again, I am just trying to get a fairly good number for the purpose of negotiating and coordinating arrangements.

  The newsletter - which is slightly delayed due to Roy Baum's upcoming shoulder surgery - will have the details on the reunion activities.

  Thanks, and look forward to hearing from you if will be at the reunion.
