Reaching Out to 6/31st Men, Concerning the Branson Reunion

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.

Reaching Out to 6/31st Men, Concerning the Branson Reunion

Postby Delta75 » Tue Apr 07, 2015 9:56 pm

FYI: I just did a quick count, and it appears that we have attempted to contact, via email, postcards, phone calls, and/or letters ~2,200 6/31st men, in order to inform them of the very first "stand-alone" 6/31st reunion, in Branson, MO, June 4 - 6. As part of this reaching out, our 6/31st men have contributed over $800 to fund a paid search for the remaining 134 men for whom we had never completed a paid search. This reaching out has already permitted us to move quite a few men from "Searching For" to "Located" on our 6/31st roster. Sadly, we have also identified 36 more our Brothers as having passed away. This brings our "identified" Deceased since returning from Vietnam total to 605.

BTW: With 2 months still to go before the Branson Reunion, our total Battalion registrations are already up to 154, and it appears that we have an excellent chance of beating the previously thought un-beatable 6/31st reunion attendance record of 163, which was set at the 2007 31st Regiment Association Reunion in San Antonio, TX.
