Oct 11 – Oct 14, 2018
Reunion XIX in Tucson, Arizona

The new Web site is a well-crafted, and comprehensive. It is much more than a great place to get current news and information; it is continually evolving and becoming The Place to find an ever-increasing amount of history about our AC-119 Gunship Association. Further, it will simplify and automate: Reunion registrations (event module); buying Association merchandise from the Quartermaster’s site (eCommerce); and communicating within the Association’s membership. The result reduces a lot of background labor.

Thank you again to our very hard working teams:

Information Technology (IT) Committee: Wayne Laessig, Ron Julian, Jim Mattison enjoy your new web site.

Kudos again to the 2017 reunion coordinators for Dayton Reunion XVIII: Ron Julian, Rogers Stevens, Al Heuss,  Jim Alvis, Vern Hansen

Mike Drzyzga , Association President
