New Found Members - We are still finding members who plan to attend the 2014 Reunion. It brings us great joy to welcome them to our Association. Recently, Dennis Behm sent me this e-mail: "After all these years-I served in Vietnam June '67-June'68-I am considering attending the 2014 Reunion in Orlando. This will be the first time attending and I am looking forward to seeing some of my service buddies. I couldn't find some of the guys that I flew with, on the Reunion Website.

"Do you know the whereabouts of David A. Wellner, Richard Ruiz, John J. McFarlane, Randy D. Dibble, or Gary E. Vining? Dave Wellner was my crew chief for most of my tour and I believe he lives in Florida.

"Dennis Behm, gunner 1st Cav/MEDEVAC '67-'68, North Tonawanda, New York."

15th MED Assn. President Maurice "Corky Walsh Medevac454@aol.com  writes, "As everyone has gathered, I like to call and check on everyone and see how your health and well being is.

"I have talked to Gus & Patsy Bensenhaver; they are doing fine and Gus is doing well after knee surgery. Dan and Ann Toothman are doing great; John and Barbra Crespi are Iooking good; Dave and Val are getting ready to move into their new home. I know some times I can be a pain in the butt for calling but it is my way of staying in touch with everyone.

"I just talked to Jim Calibro and he told me that the book-The Conflict that was a War; In Vietnam and at Home-he, Randy and I helped to write, with sixteen other men from the Modesto VA Center, has sold over fourteen hundred copies. All monies from the sales of the book go to help veterans with disabilities.

"I want each and everyone of you to start thinking about the reunion in Orlando in April, be sure to register early. Take care, and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me; Bob; Lee; Jim; and we will get answers to your questions. 15th MED Reunion reminder: Location: Orlando, FL, Dates: Apr 2 to 6 Wed to Sun.
