Comment: The Reunion is still on hold. Do not send reunion dues out. Hopefully we will decide what is going to happen with reunions from here on out, after all of this is resolved. Covid has been a big obstacle. Hope you can be patient and compassionate. Those past hosts I’m sure are up to hearing suggestions from any of the members. Jim and Patty Carriere 2019 Reunion Hosts

Comment: Had a familiar voice answer a number I called, after using the Whitepage search engine. I’ve been looking for this Gladiator for 30 + years. An old Crewchief I flew with my home state of Minnesota. Donal Shindledecker.He crewed #118 He’s living in Washington state. He was excited to talk about what we went through, and wants to attend our reunions. I tell the story of Donal having a locker full of different weapons, and him offering me to take what needed. I chose the 79 grenade launcher . He recalled that scenario. I will be communicating with him regularly. If anyone knew Donal Shindledecker, and wants to contact him..let me know. He claimed to have gone on R&R with Petrowski. Donal was there 67-68 Finally..a piece to the puzzle in place. Jim Carriere
