Contacting the guys that didn't get emails about reunion

Postby Niner Alpha » Tue Oct 07, 2014 10:33 am

At the moment we have 585 email addresses of former 6/31st guys from all companies and times. These can be reached easily enough at no actual cost. We also have another 747 guys we have contact addresses for that we would like to reach out to about this reunion. To do this we could use some more volunteer help in searching out and making phone calls. If guys would volunteer for their own platoons that would be helpful. At the same time we want to mail out post cards with the basic time , place and hotel reservation details to those who don't have emails and we have not otherwise contacted. Jerry White and myself are willing to do this at a cost of about $225 each. If anybody wants to contribute a few bucks to this project you can do so through the paypal donate link under the banner name of this site. Any money donated will be only used for this purpose. And anybody who contributes will be recognized as helping with this project.

Another thing that would be of invaluable service would be if, when we have the details settled and the post cards printed, we could get guys from each company and each platoon to volunteer to mail a few of the cards, that we will supply, to addresses we can furnish, of their own old platoon members. It would be of great help. All that would be needed would be to fill in a message of your own composition inviting the addressee to the reunion. Then address the cards with the addresses we can supply you with and mail them. If we could get enough guys to volunteer...and we have a few already... all of the cards can be mailed out a dozen or so at a time at small cost to the senders but a possible big benefit to making this reunion a big success. All money collected in this endeavor will be spent on this getting the word out project and Jerry and I will cover the gaps in the expense. Jerry has already got a plan in place for getting everybody possible in Delta company accounted for as we go forward. We expect to get the word out to everybody possible from all companies and account for everyone we have a link to in some form or the other.


It is very possible , and probably desirable, that we send out more than one mailing of these cards as time goes on. It's still a long way from now to next June. Anybody willing to help or to donate a few bucks to offset the expense would be doing something important to help get this project up and running.
