Gathering of Rusty Eagles--Reunion 2017---September 21st-23d
Each year, our reunions take us down different paths--and certainly 2017 will be no exception. A Vietnam Veterans Association will serve as our host and to show their appreciation for the missions we flew in Vietnam, they are picking up the tab for our local transportation and dinner. Several dignitaries have stepped up and offered to speak to our assembled group both at dinner and at the memorial service.
At the Memorial location rests a UH-1H mounted on a pedestal--adorned with Dustoff red crosses and bearing a 45th Medical Company (AA) patch which is representative of all the units and crew members that flew under a Dustoff or a Medevac callsign. During the Memorial event, a special dedicated brick honoring Vietnam Dustoff Crewmembers will be unveiled.
Folks, this event is designed to honor your service and dedication for heroism and self-sacrifice on the battlefield. Members of the media are expected to attend one or more events. It is expected that there will be a great out pouring of love and appreciation for what you did as Dustoff crews. If you have never been to a reunion before or never plan to attend one in the future, I would suggest that you make an exception and place this one on your bucket list calendar.
