There is also another surprise about this memorial service that is in the nascent stage at the moment but will prove to be a first for any 6/31st gathering since Vietnam when it happens.

The star who will sing a song at our memorial service for free is appearing at the Starlite Theater. The Starlite Theater is offering their facilities for the Memorial service at no charge to us. It is likely we will be getting some discount ticket information for his shows shortly. News about this to follow. Attached is his flyer announcing his scheduled performances.

Mike Moynahan is now in primary charge of this event and will be in charge of orchestrating and directing the proceedings. I can also announce that it has been arranged that the battalion color will be at the reunion. Col Gearin's family, who has finial custody of the flag that Col. Gearin had in his possession, is sending the flag to Col. Jack Logan for him to bring to our reunion for this memorial service. It will be the first time this flag will be reunited with the veterans it represents since the battalion left Vietnam in September of 1970.
