Folks I got the below note from Charlie Hahn February 17, 2015. I forgot to post it on the website at the time. Don Ristine 212th 65-67 pointed out to me March 1st. Since then I have been having computer problems at my home. I am having to use my daughter's computer to post this please bare with me. There's been a change of dates for the reunion and also for the hotel. The new date is just one week earlier Thursday October 1 to Saturday October 3. The hotel is now the Renaissance Hotel at DuPont Circle, a Marriott Hotel. This is a bigger hotel and has facilities to accommodate our dinner. Sorry for the change of plans, but I believe we will get a better rate for the new dates. I hope this doesn't inconvenience anybody who might have booked airline tickets. I will definitely have all arrangements by the end of the month. Sorry for this but the weather has been bad and a few snow flakes and DC closes down. Government workers ...enough said!

Hepatits C linked to Agent Orange Exposure
I had my annual physical this past Wed and all is well there. They asked if I would like my blood be drawn to be tested for Hep C. I did. They explained that there is a like to Agent Orange. First I heard of it but was wondering if you could post this on the Alumni web site or Facebook to alert the guys.
Thanks Dave Johns 981st 70-71

This was posted in the Jan Feb 2015 Newsletter. William H. Jones 212th MP CO 67-68, 01-04-1949 -- 04-08-2014. I believe this was confirmed by the widow. I searched for obituaries and found one for William. The obituary only contained funeral arrangements.

Human Interest Story
From Jim Frost 981st 70-71.
In 2011 we had two families who joined us for the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade. Kathy and Darrell Rusk and their youngest son, Brady. Their middle son, Colton was a Marine canine handler. He was shot and killed by a sniper. The family adopted his dog, Eli. We also had Nan and Vinnie, mother and step-dad of Billy Crouse, also a Marine canine handler. He was killed by an IED that was set off by the Taliban in Afghanistan as he and his dog Cane, approached it. Both were killed. Before he died, Billy was calling for Cane to be loaded onto the medevac with him.
A few days before the parade, I received a call from John Goheen. He is a documentarian out of Loyola University. He was a major part of a project called 11/11/11. Different people were covering various veteran related events on that day. He wanted to come out to interview the Rusk family for a three to four minute segment for the documentary. 11/11/11 has been out for awhile. We set it up. This is the segment that John covered. As you can see, it ended up being far more than four minutes. This whole subject affected Mr Goheen as well. John Burnam was also out here for the parade that year.

Message From Charlie Hahn 212th 66-67
Hi, Guys, I'm Charlie Hahn, 212th 66/67 Long Binh Ammo Dump. There seems to be some confusion about who is organizing the 2015 Reunion. Yes, I volunteered, but you must realize...I'd been drinking. However, With the help of Gary Smith, a real stand-up guy, the word has gone out, and response is great. The date is set for 2015 October 8, 9, & 10, in Washington DC at the Doubletree Hotel 1515 Rhode Island Ave. NW. Rates have not been set yet and its still too early to book rooms. I expect to have all this settled within the next few months. So far, we have 83 people (members, wives, main squeezes & guests) planning to attend. If you haven't notified me yet, I'd appreciate if you could contact me of your intention to attend. The more people, the better rate I can negotiate. My email is email@example.com and phone is 410-690-3752, leave a message. Stay well!

I got this from Charlie Charles Hahn, 212th 66-67. Please let Charlie know if you are going to attend the reunion. He cannot properly plan without your input. Who knows, if we get enough folks to commit maybe he can get better prices at the hotel.
I would like to get a rough count of people who will attend the reunion, October 8, 9, 10th 2015 in DC. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Need names, MP Company (212th, 981st, 565th), time of service. Cost for rooms at The Doubletree Hotel should not be in excess of $150 and I hope to do better on costs, but need to know approximate attendees. You can also contact me at 410-690-3752. Please leave a message with the pertinent information.
