I expected 20 and we had 34. A great time was had by all. We had four members of Charlie Troop make their first Reunion. Mike LaChance Blue Platoon Leader from 69/70. Robert (Rob) Struck Blue India 69/70. Larry Oestringer Blue Platoon member 67-68. Crae Carpenter Blue Platoon member 68-69. Each brought their Beautiful wife which made the reunion even more enjoyable.

The Reunion was held on St George Island, Florida which is located in the Panhandle. The weather participated for every thing but picture taking at the Veteran’s Park.

We are planning our next reunion for October 2014 in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Invitations will be sent out as soon as all elements are complete.

Jim Reid 65-66 is holding a Charlie Troop Reunion in Branson, Missouri April 30 to May 3. I hope to see every Charlie Trooper at at least one of these.
