Unable to attend on the 20th

Sad I must report that I will not make the re-dedication of the 11th ACR's memorial on the 20th, as I am a crossing guard and my kids need me there. I will announce when I plan to go so any troopers around (Middle Georgia) can join us if they wish. It is looking like some time next month when were off on break.

Hi Joseph Protsman, I do remember you, I guess you don't remember me. I was in the 3rd platoon and Sterling Cooper was my roommate. Remember you, Chesbro, and myself attended BNCOC at Viseck, West Germany together in 1978.
Hope to hear from you soon. Allons!!!

For those attending the June 2015 Blackhorse Association Reunion in Las Vegas, if you haven't reserved your room at the Venetian at the $100 rate, the clock is ticking down. Actually, it has already ticked down, but the hotel management just extended the deadline. The number of available rooms is dwindling quickly. Phone Mr. Perry Frias at 702-414-0355 and get that room. You can arrive 3 days before the Reunion and stay 3 days after the Reunion and get the same rate. Randall Ponder, Baton…
