  • 2010 Silent Auction!

    Hey Everybody,

    Good News! The POPASMOKE Reunion Silent Auction is back!

    With 150 days until the reunion, we've got to get crankin' on donations for the silent auction. For those of you that attended the D.C. Reunion, you might agree that the silent auction was quite a large event and frequent gathering place for hours of browsing and video watching.

    Here's where you come in: We need DONATED ITEMS!

    To donate an item for the silent auction in Reno, even if you are not attending, please fill out this online form, once for EACH item being donated.

    Typical items of interest include: USMC collectibles or just about anything USMC oriented, In-Country items from all conflicts, helicopter related items, uniforms or flight gear, jackets, flags, hand-crafted items, artwork, jewelry, manuals, maps, MPC, photos, patches, magazines, knives, weapons, time shares, memberships, gift certificates, HUMMERs (OK, not likely ), crafts, or anything else for reunion attendees or spouses.

    Again, all donors will be recognized.
