Reunion News

August 14,2023


Hello Fellow Comrades,

    Both myself and Rocky have been working very hard regarding the final preparations for our reunion. I will address any of your questions ASAP.  Any questions regarding golf will be addressed by Roy Ahuna as he is the golf geru.

    There have been questions again regarding the Cobra and Huey flights. The Cobra flights are $ 625.00 / hour and the Huey are $110.00 / hour. Contact information for flights will be @ Army Aviation Heritage Foundation chapter in Phoenix, Az. Call 800-546-2843 or www.heritage.org you will make your own appointments for the flights.

     There are only nine (9) rooms available for booking remaining at the Canoa Ranch Golf Resort. So if you plan to be at the reunion Hotel make your reservations as soon as possible to reserve your room at the 191stASLT Hel rates.

Please submit your applications to the reunion through the web. Site to Bill Janes.

    Reminder of activities:  On Friday night we will have a cookout outside of the Hospitality room with the pool hamburgers, hot dogs. During this cookout we will be having a Karaoke session with Marie and Bob, the best in the Tucson area. I urge you all to participate as it will be a lot of fun along with plenty of drink. The more beer I have the better I sound, I’m sure it will be the same for you. Saturday there will be visits to Tombstone, or Dessert  Museum , Davis Montham AFB, Pima Aircraft museum and other landmarks in the area. We are working on transportation to these landmarks both Friday and Saturday.  Saturday will be our formal sit down dinner at the Canoa Hills Recreation center with either Prime Rib or Salmon, dessert and coffee or tea along with a bar for drinks. Both myself and Rocky hope you participate in the Karaoke on Friday because the more singers the better the time. Get involved in our reunion and each of you find one more member to come.

    If you have attended other reunions you know how good of a time it is. Only. Fun stories and exaggerating  all you want only get better. I have invited a friend who was in the 240th the Greyhounds and Mad Dogs at the same time as us in Bearcat. Come enjoy having fun.

    We want this to be the best reunion yet, and it will be hard to accomplish that as we have had so many memorable ones in the past. Our Major Patnode will be attending, along with Don Williams and Kevin Kenny who will do their performances. I was told Major Patnode will be bringing his Flight helmet which was painted by Weske.

      Paul Vitale & Rocky Roccabello

I am planning an itinerary and will have it out soon as there is so much to do here. I know you will enjoy it. Both myself and Rocky are planning this reunion to be the best ever. For those of you who have been to the reunions there is no need to tell you how they are. Many of our 191sters have never been to a reunion and the reunions are a place of comradery, meeting old friends and new who have many of your characteristics, remember you are not the only one as I used to think.

I came across this and thought it pertinent to all of us. a quote:
" Some People wonder all their lives if they've made a difference in this world. We don't have that problem "
Come to the reunion, make your reservations now !!! I promise you a great time.

See you there. Paul Vitale
