Beef, for God's sake count me in! Hell, I might even re-join the SFA.

Great! I'll get you put on the snail mail list, too. It's going to be a blast.

I'm over in Afghanistan now and was able to retrieve a Memorial Plaque for SFC Chris Robinson, which I'll bring to the 2/20th SFG(A) 50th Anniversary Reunion. If you have any new information on location and DTG, please post.

Crip and Dave, we look forward to seeing you guys! The beer is on me. Dave, it will mean a lot for you to bring that plaque back. Chris's widow will be there. She has remarried to a great guy that was hit in the same engagement that killed Chris. Crip, there's a bunch of guys looking forward to meeting you. The date/time above is firm. I've covered you two's fees, so just show up. You do have to dress nice, (tux or suit) but you don't have to act nice! I'm sure I won't!

Beef, are there any other activities in conjunction with the 50th anniversary, or is this just a dinning in affair? How are things going in your neck of the woods?

IDK, TF. I was wondering the same thing. I will ask CPT Crosby if it is possible to put on some static displays or dog and pony shows for us older guys that think Gore-Tex, Polypro and 2 quart canteens are cutting edge stuff. They have put on such at past reunions. Runt wants the 82nd ABN Glee Club to sing, but I told him that just because DADT is gone, you don't have to go completely gay. Otherwise, things are good.
