The dates have been set for next years Pigeon Forge Reunion.  After doing a fantastic job of hosting the reunion for several years, Juan has stepped down and Israel Tames is taking the reigns.  Lets all give Israel our support in undertaking this new task.
 
The dates are May 17th - 20th, 2012.
 
This years reunion was a huge success.  Following are some of the statistics.
 
There was a record turn out of 127 for the reunion.  This included 71 Veterans and 56 Spouses/Guests.
 
There were 4 WWII Veterans in and 1 Iraq Veteran in attendance.
 
28 States were represented, including, California, Washington, Montana, and Utah.
 
The top three companies in attendance were:
A,2/2 ............... 20
C,1/2 ............... 19
HHC,2/2 ..........   9
 
On Saturday evening we were treated to some very special entertainment by Sammy Lambastida, Alvin Howard, Van Morrison, Pam Leslie, Pam Foster, and Eileen Anderson.  There were a few other willing and unwilling participants but the names slip my mind.

Hi Juan,
Send me the information if you could. I might try and make it this year if possible. Might have to go by myself because of the little ones school. We will have to see because I know Gayla would like to go also. You are going right? Hope Frank will be going also. Also send me two of the new Coins or are they the same ones I bought a couple of months ago. Talk to you soon.

I said the I will be mailing it by the end of the month--now it will be by the middle of next month.

Thanks to all for your concern. I will be OK, in another week. The Doctor don't want me to go to the gym--well I went and he saw me there, I just told him that I could do lot of things without using my right hand like cardio--and talk to the babes that go there... He said Sarge-- continue the march....
Again Thank you.
 
It make me feel good knowing that I have all my brothers out there looking after me.
 
Have a great Thanksgiving Day with all you love ones.

Here is some more information for the reunion. I know that is early, however we have to plan in advance so we can get a good reunion going. Yesterday I mailed more registration forms---about a 100. Also I have another 100 to go yet---Remember I have a secret roster.
 
Remember that you have to send your registration form with the contribution to Israel Tames by May 1st 2012.
 
I will be in the month of March at Ft Knox, KY. I will talk to the commander and the CSM of the 2/2 to see how many soldiers they will send to the reunion. I will be posting the information I get from them.

We don't think we will be coming to Piegon Forge this year. Jr wants to go to the First Infantry reunion in August in Memphis, so we just make one trip to Tenn. this year. But we will not be going to Flordia next year. Jr. is doing pretty good, but gets pretty tried and I am having a lot of trouible with my eye and ear since I fell and spilt my head open. Pat

JR and Pat, sorry to hear that you are not doing well. We will miss you at the reunion. We see you at the reunion in Memphis, I will be there over night only, just for the sat night supper.
Take care and hang in there.

Hello All, and especially Juan and Sgt. Thames,

  I will definately be there in May and my mom won't let me go without her. Just wanted to let you know that!  We will try to bring some photos and some memorabilia from Dad.  My daughter might like to go again, also, but it depends on her work schedule.
  I can't wait to see everyone, and maybe meet some new folks. Take care,

Robin Prillaman Lessig

Per Tel call from the President of the 1st Inf Div Association--CSM Buddy Wallace, he indicated to me that he and his wife will attend the reunion at Pigeon Forge in May. He is going to try and get Dave Blake the Publisher of the Bridgehead news paper to come too so he can get a write up in the paper about the reunion.
