  • Please honor the RSVP date of Friday April 21, 2017. (Your PayPal transaction or check will be your RSVP). Thanks very much for your cooperation in this.
  • When you complete the PayPal  transaction, please send Milo an email with the names of those attending in your party so we can have name tags for everyone. We will be printing name tags on Saturday April 22.
  • Please take note of the "Fallen Comrades" table set up in the main dining room. Take a moment during the evening to honor our fallen comrades.
  • At ~2000 we would like all the Marines and civilians who have operated, maintained, supported, etc. CH-53s to gather in the Marathon Bar underneath the banner for a group picture.
  • When that group is finished (~2010), we'd like to get the spouses and significant  others formed up under the banner for a group picture.
  • From that point, the rest of the evening is yours to enjoy.
  • If you have any digital pictures or videos of CH-53s, or squadron mates and would like to email them to miloshank@gmail.com. We will play them during the evening.
  • If you have not yet visited the National Museum of the Marine Corps just outside the gate at Quantico, plan your day on the 29th to visit. Hours on Saturday are from 9 to 5. The museum is spectacular, the staff extremely helpful, and you will be impressed by what you see.
If you’ve joined us at one of these gatherings in the past, you know that we have a great time with old friends. Help get the word out and pass this along to any and all who are or have been associated with the CH-53 community.
