The post cards are going into the mail

This forum was created for information about the very successful first battalion stand alone reunion in June of 2015. It remains to remember the success and perhaps to encourage planning of another such reunion in the future.

The post cards are going into the mail

Postby Niner Alpha » Wed Jan 28, 2015 1:02 pm

It's a slow process. We are just now getting the last of the recheck of nearly 1500 mail addresses finished. I did Alpha and Bravo and Jerry did the rest. Delta 3rd platoon, mail only addresses are getting a private mailing of a letter and invitation from Jerry and are not in the postcard mailing list. I've been working on mailing by company and have to address and stamp each postcard and will be doing all the mailing. Many have to be hand addressed because of address change or a skip in label printing hiccup. (Although printing of labels was a big help from Chuck Thrush, and much appreciated.) By the end of today all of Alpha and Bravo should be posted and in some stage of delivery by the Post Office. Charlie, Delta, Echo, and HHC to follow in order.

Keep in mind, with this mailing, our list of guys we know have emails ,will not be getting this postcard.

The second thousand will look a little different...but his one will have a message in addition to the basic information. Call it a sales pitch if you will. The texture is different because of the way the message is put on the card before mailing.

There is light at the end of the tunnel. After the batch you see in the photo, done today, there are 266 more to go before postcards are all in the mail to guys we have addresses for but no email address.

The email list remains without postcards. So... if we have been contacting you by email, that's generally how it's going to remain.

Super job Niner! Wow! Can't believe we have actually done it; that is, reached out to almost 2,000 men via email + mailings.

Well done, Niner. Snail mail is low tech, but it works!

Hopefully most of them will be noticed and won't be ignored in the junk mail for pizza, drugstore deals, grocery advertisements, car sales, etc.
