    I know it's mid-week this year, but the POPASMOKE crew will be setting up the "hootch" (tent) as usual at 20th and Constitution. Set up is scheduled for 1900 hrs. on the 9th. Any help you can give for the set up would really be appreciated.

    Hours of operation will be 0800 hrs. on the 10th to about 1500 hrs. when we have to leave for the rush hour lanes to open. Memorial ceremony at The Wall is at 1230 hrs. followed by Marine Corps Birthday cake back at the hootch.

    Hours of operation on the 11th (Veterans Day) will be 0800 hrs. to about 1430hrs. when we break down.

    I encourage all who can help with this important POPASMOKE event to "COME ON DOWN" and lend a hand manning the tent. You won't regret meeting and greeting all the Vietnam vets, their families, friends and the many others who come to pay tribute.

    Please let Larry Zok or Joe Scholle know if you can help with this important POPASMOKE event.

      Dale, Joe, it would be nice to make it, but many of we members are a long way from the DC area, and just not enough time to make the trip. If only they could have put the Wall in the center of the Country. I was able in '98, I believe to make a reunion there. Constant driving seems like it was several days. Well worth it though. Now, conditions prohibit driving. Have a very Good visit to all who get to go. Semper Fi, and READY-APP.

          Believe

          JJ, your right, it would be good to get there before we don't have a chance again. I was there before 2000, and would like to go again, but there is the problem of getting someone to care for the animals and all. I'm sure it has changed a bit since then. Read an article about how clean the airlines were the other day. Not good at all. From bugs in the water, to just over all dirty planes. They have to start cleaning them better in late '11. Have good ones. Semper Fi, and READY-APP.

                JJ, hope you can get a carpool with Dale. It certainly would save a bunch of money. Dale thats Great you can offer to help JJ. Good visits up, during the activities, and a good tired one back. That is a killer for a lot of Vets., going to reunions and all, the costs. It takes over a year, close to two to save enough to make it. Several of us still have Wives working, and in my situation, she would be the one driving if we went that way. Each reunion is close or well over 2 thousand bucks, or more. Its great if you are in a high paying job, or Family is rich, but its just very costly for a lot of us. I don't believe it would pay to start robbing banks at my age. Don't believe I'd live until the trial. lol. Semper Fi, and READY-APP.

                          For Heaven Sakes Ace don't go to that length . I know it cost yet we all aren't rich as some may think. What funds come the same funds GO OUT the other end. For me it was a FEW bucks that came my way from MOM and Dad pasting away that has allow me to fund some of the trips. Guess you might say God gave me a Blessing from Mom And Dad . I have try to use those few Bucks for very special things ,and I know Mom and Dad away's knew How much I enjoyed the reunions by my sharing moments with them after I was back. Keep the Chin up and it will happen. JJ

                            I understand JJ. It'll do you good to get to go. Hope you can team up with Dale, like he, and I had mentioned. That would save a bunch, and you'd be in the beast of company. A mini reunion going to the Birthday Ball. Not much better than that. Semper Fi, and READY-APP.

                              Another Birthday and Veterans Day has come and gone. The weather was OUTSTANDING thank God.

                              Special thanks to Lindsay Bloom (Dean Martin Show, Dingalings and Golddiggers) and Ron Masak (Sheriff Metzger on Murder She Wrote) for coming down and helping with our Memorial Ceremony. Ron and Lindsay were on the wreath presentation detail, Ron read the Commandants Birthday Message, and both made the first cut of the Birthday Cake. These two are really class acts !!

                              Thanks also to Slick, Tom and Tom, Jim, Dale and Larry for their untiring work.

                              Semper Fi guys.
