P. 0. BOX 6162

Dear Association Members,

We sincerely hope you all enjoyed the 1988 Combat Control Association Reunion. Even though it was somewhat hastily put together because of the cancellation of the Volant Rodeo at Pope, we believe it will rank as one of the best.

The success of the Navarre Reunion was due to the tremendous efforts put forth by the members of the 1723rd CCS, the 1721st STGP and the numerous volunteers associated with these two groups. Specific thanks go to, first of all, Wayne Norrad, who brought it all together one more time. Highlights were the golf tournament, headed by Rick Crutchfield, the dart tournament, by J. D. Burch and for the first time, a boat trip on the Santa Rosa Sound organized by Clyde Howard. No reunion would be complete without Sally Pender's sound on slide presentation. This year's poignant salute to our deceased members touched us all. Accolades go to Bobby Boyle, Rex Wollmann, Roger Wildermuth, Carl Casey, Mike Breeden, Tony Logsden and to Darlene Lebold for organizing the wives. We could go on and on, but since space will not permit, our appreciation goes to everyone who helped make the reunion a success.

Colonel John Buck's brief but elegant speech was an inspiration to us all. His words of wisdom never fail to entertain us. We would like to also extend our gratitude to the 1724th CCS, otherwise known as the North Carolina Raisins, who brought the house down.

It is our hope that the newly elected officers can carry on in the fine tradition of reunions set by outgoing president Wayne Norrad. See you all next year!
