On, Wisconsin! 2015 Reunion a success
As the Editors of this publication, Darren and I can take some liberties in our recap of this year’s reunion. Thank you to all those that attended this reunion in honor of Robert Hamm, WT3/c B-Div., and contributed to making Milwaukee a success.
We would first like to thank Sally Owen and the William Schauer, F1/c E-Div., family for their many contributions including the memorial ceremony music and the silent auction.
Captain (Ret.) Gary Schnurrpusch USN , CO. USS O’Callahan and USS Gary, delivered a very nice speech at our memorial ceremony. The Captain was attending as a guest at the Milwaukee reunion and was happy to help us out by delivering this speech. Thank you Captain Schnurrpusch.
One highlight to the reunion was the Curtiss SB2C Hell Diver “The Beast”, operated by the West Texas Wing of the Commemorative Air Force and brought to us by Jerry Scott and Ed Vesely (www.sb2chelldiver.com). I know Darren enjoyed this addition to the reunion and we hope you did as well.
I would personally like to thank those that reached out to me about my family. I was sorry to miss this reunion and am looking forward to Gettysburg. Darren and I have already booked the hotel and mapped the roads out (we are just a little excited)! Thank you again to all that attended our re-union, we’ll see you in Gettysburg!
