Dear Fellow Knights;  

I've been busy as a volunteer doing taxes for the past two weeks and writing this slipped up on me.  If you don't know, the AARP and the United Way sponsor a program that is put out by the Internal Revenue Service called VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance).  It is a free program and they will do both the federal and state taxes and then electronically file them.  If you are looking for help they are great.  If you are looking for something to do, they are a great program.  They teach you all you need to know and are always looking for volunteers.

     Well, here we are in another year.  (Where did Y2K go?)  I talked with Susan last week and she should be getting out the CDs of the pictures taken at the reunion to the attendees shortly.

     I hope you had a good holiday season and got to spend quality time with your family.  Maybe I am just getting older, but it is great to see the grandchildren maturing and taking responsibility for their lives.  They are such a reminder of the grace we have received as survivors of Vietnam.  Thinking of the tragedy at the high school in Florida, I cant imagine the heartbreak those parents and grandparents are going through.  Remember them in your prayers. 

     Do you want to know why Peyton Manning was always calling out Omaha when he was at the line of scrimmage?  Well, join us next year in Omaha for Reunion 2019 and you will find out. Start saving your pennies now so you can be with your fellow Knights and Cobras.  A good time is promised, and it wont be the same without you.  We will be publishing more information later this year so you can do planning.  But you can start getting your maps out and plotting a course. 

    Gene Boyle is doing a fabulous job in gathering information for a monument at Memorial Park in Ft. Rucker.  We are planning on including all attached units on the front and KIAs on the back.  We have to make a formal presentation to a committee at Ft. Rucker and that will take some time.  We will try to keep you informed as to progress and a proposed Commemorative date.  That will be late this year at the earliest. 

    Thanks so much to all of you who have helped in so many ways over the years.  The Association is strong, and we are looking for many great reunions yet to come.  Wagons Ho!!!
