Another undertaking that is coming up will be our presence at the picnic and “Yellow Ribbon Day” at Picatinny. It is scheduled to be on Saturday, May 18th. It will be a gathering of the 185 returning members of Golf Company, their families, friends, military organazations and officials. Deb Burkland will inform us as to the latest news about their return and the gathering planned for them as it could change.
The main concern is that some of you, dressed in our Slattery garb are at the gathering. This will take place about a week after the initial return. At the initial return, if like the last time Golf returned from the war zone, the guys arrived in buses and were met by their families and went home. Nice, but no big thing for us. Several of our members will be there for that, but our main concern will be the following gathering a week or so later on May 18th..
So, let us wait for the May meeting and the latest information from Debbie.
