I thought we might have a small turnout for our 2009 reunion in Reno, Nevada because of the uncertainty in today's economy.  Some of the 'regular' attendees would not be able to attend; but there was a group of dedicated folks who made the trip. 

Would you like to share your thoughts about the reunion?  Send them to me and Iíll post it on the website.

I really hope everyone uses the website to stay in touch.  Any time you have any news send it my way.  I know all of your buddies would love to hear the news.  And remember if you have a change of address or a new e-mail address please let me know.

I would also like to encourage everyone to help with the missing former members.  We still have a pretty large list of over 700 individuals (only about half of these with a mailing address) who once served in the 161st.

Well, if you made it to the reunion, please tell all your friends what they missed!  We had a wonderful time and I would like to thank everyone for coming out and making it a great event.  I hope everyone had a great time.

Please keep in touch through the web site and keep us all up-to-date on where you are and how you are doing.

Thanks again for coming and hope to see you at the next reunion.
