Message From The President
Dear Vietnam Veteran,
As the current president of the 709th Maintenance Battalion and 99th Combat Support Battalion Association, I want to extend a greeting of "Hello" and a heartfelt "Thank You" for your honorable service in Vietnam and the 9th Infantry Division. You are an Army soldier who is a part of our country's national treasure - the U.S. Military. You rightfully deserve to be proud of your military service. You served our country when many found ways to avoid service.
The Association consisting of members who served in Vietnam and the 9th Infantry Division have banded together to form a group in which we can share our special memories of that time so long ago.
At our reunions, we exchange stories of fear, loneliness, and friendship and the fun times all of which are embedded in our memories. It is always heartwarming to be together again with our brothers. The events at the reunion were hosted by our good friends, Dean Ayres and his family who will organize many activities to be announced, fireworks and enough food and beverages to feed an army. It is simply a great occasion and so much fun.
In order to maintain our momentum, we need your support. I would like you to please consider participating in our next reunion and become a member of our Association; the reunion for 2015 will be Sept 16-19 it again will take place in the Hunt Valley, Maryland area. We are in the process of planning a bus trip on Thurs Sept 17th, details to be posted as soon as they are finalized.
Please mark your calendars now and plan to bring your spouse, girlfriend, family members. Each year the wives bond just as much as we vets. They share the common bond of being the spouse of a Vietnam veteran. Everyone always has a wonderful time.
Those who have attended can testify that we start looking forward to the next reunion the day after the latest one ends!
Optional membership in the association is suggested but NOT required. These monies will be used to defray administrative costs such as mailings, printings, etc. All the effort in keeping our Association viable is done on a voluntary basis and we sincerely appreciate the effort of our current members.
In closing and in behalf of our Association, we wish you well and we hope that you will join our group.
President of the Association
