Hi everyone. I just heard this morning, 18 NOV 21, that our fellow classmate, Marty Rogers passed away. I don’t know the details, I learned this from another classmate. Just wanted to put this out, so more people will know.

I want to thank everyone that came out Saturday evening to enjoy the fellowship amongst classmates. I know life is really strange right now and hope by the next get together we will all be living in a healthy environment with no concerns about viruses. We definitely missed those that were not able to make it.

I want to thank those involved with putting the 40th reunion together:

Nancy Weatherly Corlett for getting us a cost break on the CC

Greg Mullins for paying for the rest of the rental fees for the CC

Pam Young Runnels for putting together the "in memory of" table and also the slide show

Kathy Wall Williams for helping Pam update the Classmates we have lost list

Donna Dickson Smith for the wonderful decorations

David Couch for flashback of the 70's and 80's music

Brett Armstrong for reserving us a place Friday night to hang out

This was a wonderful group to work with and it all fell perfectly into place.

Note: You can download your pictures into this site. We will have a 40th reunion folder on the left column of this website. 

Please provide us with any updates you may have on anything we need to share with the group. Also if your email will be changing, please let us know so that we can keep you in the loop. If you know someone on the "lost" list please ask them to join this website so that they can stay informed, too.

Till we meet again!!!

On May 5, 2013, Colonel Michael Claybourne will relinquish command of the 11th Aviation Brigade, which is the largest Aviation Brigade in the US Army.

Joey Hall and his son, JP, Jay Griffin and his son Jake, Mike Cahalan and his son Zack, and Bill Coggins will attend Mike's Dining Out on May 4 and his Change of Command on May 5. Mike will retire on May 31, 2013.
