Change of Command,
and a new "Second Class"
Pass in Review...
and we did it so well!
A new feature is available, Alumni pages for bios, photos, etc.
Go the the Alumni Page, and if the name has an underline, it is linked to the bio page for that person. Al Partin and I have both posted bios, but business is slow...
Let me know by e-mail if you want your bio, (new, modified, or from the 1999 reunion book) posted. Pages will be available for all who are interested.
