The 1998 Reunion for alumni of the 161st AHC was on June 27, 1998 during the VHCMA reunion in Irving, Texas.  Those that attended, I can say, had a good time, seeing some of the guys for the first time since Vietnam.  Out of approximately 125 invitation sent, we had only 11 folks who actually showed up.  I saw a few more the following weekend during the VHPA reunion in Fort Worth. 

Come on guys, I think we can do better than this.  So next year, we will try again in conjunction with the VHCMA reunion in Denver, Colorado during the last week in June 1999.
