2017 REUNION

DATES :  2017

CITY : New Orleans

HOTEL: TBD


At the General Member meeting at the 2015 reunion, the members approved a motion for the board to investigate the possibility of our group joining 6 other 15th Air Force veterans groups.

The reasons for this merger are the declining attendance and declining financial resources.

After reviewing the joint reunion details, the board voted to join these other groups.

At the 2016 reunion, the board voted to continue meeting with the other groups, based on the success of this reunion.
