Do the volunteers and reenactors need to call the reservation number that is posted in order to attend the dinner?

Also, it is the 12th- the 16th, but the dinner is on the 15th so what will be going on the 12th-15th? Basically what im asking is which days I should come up since I am on limited funds and cant make it up  the entire week.

I would like a head count.  The vets will be coming and going all week long.  Dinner is around 630 or 700.  I will let everyone know as the time firms up. 

Travis.  I need to talk to you.  I have an internship possiblility for you if you are interested.  Let me know and we can work out the details.

Rick - my wife and I will be at the gathering Friday.  I will be at the sub on Saturday as it's a work day in addition to the memorial service.

Travis - come on back...it's been too long.

It was good to see everyone again.  Sadly, there were only 6 WWII vets that I counted.   Cry

there were only 3 of the wwii guys.   We did see more of the 681 guys though.   As the reunion was 1 week later then in previous years more people had schedule conflicts.   I hope to see more of them next year.

I had a great time, got to meet all the WWII vets, and got their autographs in one of my books.
