    Dale

    Could you please forward that photo to me so I can give it to Lindsay?

    Lindsay never made it to Nam, her singing partner Michelle Della Fave made 2 tours with Bob Hope.

    Ron Masak was a perfect Gentleman and was very happy to read the Commandant's Birthday message.

    Lindsay, as always, loves being around Vets and thoroughly enjoyed herself.

    I'll let a good looking, friendly, service oriented, Ding-a-ling (Ms. Lindsay Bloom) cut my cake any time Let the oldest and youngest have the first pieces. She served her time at DaNang and in-country for us back in the day and Ron Masak was a real gentleman and did a fine job for Popasmoke

    Crazy Joe, glad everything went well. I always thought at a Marine Birthday Ball the top ranking and lowest ranking MARINES had the honor, of something anyway. 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.

    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.

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
