Anyone planning on going?

I know one Alpha guy. Ron Madewell. He has his reservation. Anybody else from any company? Anybody going to the Regiment Association reunion instead? Anybody who went the original Branson Reunion have anything to say about this new 2020 reunion? It looks like next to nobody is talking about reunions...

Re: Remember this Navy Seal?

New leaked information says his combat team members had a less than complimentary opinion of him.

Remember this Navy Seal?

You know. That guy that was given a prisoner to take custody of. He didn't capture the guy and the prisoner was already wounded. He was a teenager to boot. This Seal hero stabbed the prisoner a couple of times, apparently for fun, but his buddy said the stab wounds didn't actually kill the prisoner....

Re: Latest November message

I guess you got the one from the 31st Regiment Association the day before. They have their ducks all in a row early it seems and everything all planned out. For a change, they actually used the mass email roster that Jerry gave them some time ago that they apparently never bothered to use before. Pa...

Re: Veteran's Day

The only people I want to hear Happy Veteran's Day from are from guys who have been there, like you Vern. It just seems so wrong at this juncture to hear it from people who were never in the service and who were in most cases not even born when the Vietnam war was going on to feel they owe us anythi...

Re: 2020 second ever Stand Alone battalion reunion

They are new at this. They haven't figured out the blind copy feature of mass emails. I'm glad that at long last they did send out an email. I hope they continue to make progress and get this second reunion off the ground.

Dan and I are headed to Branson the first week of December, where we will lock down events, dates and cost assessment which will allow ...

Re: Continued after moving the original Miyares string

The change in the Urban biography back to Non fiction is a factor of the bottom end digital book world. A printed book couldn't be amended as easily until a second edition. No doubt he was encouraged by the lack of interest in reviewing his biography beyond Jerry on one source and me on Barnes and N...

Re: The great Star license crash that is coming

Did the Texas license application ask if you if you had a passport? The passport requires as much and maybe more than the star license to get. In any case, I hate flying and don't plan to take any airplane trips that I can avoid any time in the future.

Re: The great Star license crash that is coming

Just noted another thing about it that might concern the Regiment Association. If they go back to meet with the active 4/31st at Ft. Drum again as a reunion in 2021 or afterwards, besides the reunion goers who can't fly there, the ones who don't have a star license and drive there can't come on the ...
