It's that time again! Our 19th Annual Reunion will be held 28 through 30 September 2000. This years guest speaker will be Lt. Col. Rick Francona, U.S. Air Force (Retired). Rick is the author of an important new book on U.S.- Iraqi relations, entitled "Ally to Adversary: An Eyewitness Account of Iraq's Fall from Grace." His presentation will include highlights from his book.

Once again, we ask our members to quickly respond to the reunion festivities. Also, don't forget to vote on our slate of candidates if you can't make it to our Membership Meeting on Saturday, 30 September 2000. At this year's Membership Meeting we will again be electing two officers. This year's banquet will be held at the Fiesta room in the Gateway Club, Lackland AFB, Building 2490 (You can take exit 4 -- Valley High Drive -- off of Hwy 410 or use the main entrance off of Loop 13) on Saturday, 30 September 2000. The cost of the banquet is $25.00 per person.

Our colleague and long time friend Paul Bernard wants to join us again this year and will be taking individual or group photos. Paul is offering three photo packages: Package 1 - one 8x10 photograph for $10.00, Package 2 - one 8x10 and two 5x7 photographs for $15.00, and Package 3 - an 8x10 group shot with a caption for $10.00 each (there is a purchase minimum of 20 photographs to include the caption). You can see a sample of Paul's work on the Internet at The profits from these photographs are used to pay for other reunion photography such as the Remembrance Ceremony, Hall of Honor Induction and complimentary picnic photographs.

We will hold our Remembrance Ceremony at the EC-47 memorial - an annual tradition on Friday before the PICNIC. We will help AIA rededicate the beloved "goon" to all of those who gave their lives in service to their country and we will recognize our Fallen Eagles. Please plan to be there with us to honor all who made "Freedom Through Vigilance."

Some of the organizations are taking us to heart and holding reunions in conjunction with the Freedom through Vigilance Reunion. We want to be the umbrella under which all can share the memories of the past and the comradeship of today. The Board would like to personally thank all of you for making us the great association we are. Let's hear from you! REMAIN IN TOUCH and see you in September!
