Gathering of Rusty Eagles--Reunion 2017---September 21st-23d
Each year, our reunions take us down different paths--and certainly for 2017, this will no exception. The local Vietnam Veterans Association located in Dover is honored to host us as evidenced by the fact they are picking up the tab for transporation and for a dinner. In turn, the anticipated guest speaker, a retired Major General has "asked" to speak. Typically we have to hunt down someone to speak before our group. Additionally, it is expected that the Governor of Deleware will speak as well either at our dinner or at the memorial celebration. At the Memorial location sits a UH-1H mounted on a pedestal--adorned with Dustoff red crosses and bears 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 and oversized brick honoring Vietnam Dustoff Crewmembers will be unveiled. Folks this event is to honor you for your service and dedication by many of the men you pulled from the battle fields. We expect a great deal of media exposure at these events as well as a great deal of out pouring of love and appreciation for what you did as Dustoff crews. If you have never been to a reunion before an never plan to attend one in the future, I would suggest that you make an exception and place this one on your calendar.
