A hearty hello to all Veterans, family members and supporters. We have spent many
hours planning for the upcoming Kansas Veterans and Family Reunion. We have had
many challenges this year but I am sure we have a great event in store for you all.
Everyone has heard all the hubbub about the government budget cuts and this year
it has effected the military support we usually have every year. Sadly, I must report
that there will be very little current military equipment or aircraft present this year.
On the flipside, we do have great support of the local Army Reserve unit our
of El Dorado and it also looks as the we will have equipment coming out from private
collectors and the Kansas Museum of Military History out of Augusta. We are also
excited for this years theme and artwork, and I think you all will be as well. Once
again we are looking forward to a great fireworks show and great live music. Also, when
you are out at the reunion this year, please make sure you show some love to the
all volunteer staff putting this event together. They all give of their own time
and often of their own resources to help put the reunion together. They won't ever
ask for your thanks, they just ask that you enjoy your reunion. Our staff is always
on the lookout for new members, so if you might be interested in being a part of
the planning staff then let us know. Also, we are always in need of auction items.
If you have something of interest you would like to donate to the reunion to be
used for the fund-raising auction please bring it out and get it to a staff member, every
little thing helps.
In 2012, we donated $3,000 to the Kansas Honor Flights and additionally donated $3,000 to the
Wounded Warrior Project.
The Car Show, this year, will again be run by Dale Enderud, (620) 441-1095.
With that, I will close, I look forward to seeing you all this
upcoming July and I hope you all have a great time.
Lastly to all my Brother and Sister Veterans, I wish to say WELCOME HOME!
Lance McCune Pres,
US Army (RET)
