What I witnessed today at the reunion was true leadership on display. The entire planning committee did an exceptional job. The support from the active duty members of the 24th was superb. Special thanks to Cpt Smay and 1SGT McKine for their support. Having had a chance to talk to several soldiers today, I was impressed at their knowledge level and would encourage them to think twice before they walk away from the Army. I enlisted and set my goal at 20 years. I have now been retired for 18 years and that retirement check is an absolute comfort to my family. Retread, I truly believe that there is nothing that you could do if you had your health back. Thank you for a great time. Hat's off to all who attended, especially the Nam era vet's. Hope to see all next year. Ivan, Murphy, Jones, and Renee it was great to walk down memory lane with each of you.
