Reunion, 1999 -- San Antonio
The 1999 Reunion was a MONSTER SUCCESS! Ollie, Gloria, and each of the Committee Members did an outstanding job. Many thanks go to them for being dedicated, hard working, talented, creative, and resourceful. They made it look a lot easier than it was (the mark of a pro).
Over 70 patriots attended this
reunion. They enjoyed a variety of activities: telling war stories, hearing war
stories, looking through photo albums and photo boards, meeting old friends, making new
friends, eating at "Rio Rio", going on the River Walk, shopping at the Market,
taking a horse drawn carriage tour, seeing the Alamo, reminiscing about times gone by,
hearing a briefing on Tri-Care, singing "America the Beautiful" by heart and
doing a good job of it, hearing a poem about the flag, taking pictures, posing for
pictures, voting on business, having a Banquet, listening to John Blaha's outstanding
briefing on life aboard the Mir.
It was a special time and will be remembered for many years. The only shortcoming was that not ALL OF US where there! We dedicated ourselves to finding everybody who is still kicking. We selected members that will head up the effort to find each person in their year group. A page on this web site will be reporting on progress.
The A-37 Association Reunion for 1999 was held at the Menger Hotel in San Antonio. It was a beautiful location and a memorable event. The city has plenty to do and we enjoyed both the city and the reunion activities.

And to wrap it up, let's take a Horse Drawn Carriage ride.
Late at night, when the streets cool down and the city gets quiet, the carriages appear around the Alamo square.

You think it's easy to take a picture of a black horse at midnight?
Can't wait for the next reunion!
