By all accounts our 50th Reunion was a resounding success and our Reunion Committee deserves a big round of applause for the planning of this milestone event. The group photo shows eighty-eight of America's best and brightest (at least in 1968) some of whom traveled from all over the country to attend and deserve our thanks for helping to make this one very special. We will still be meeting on the "Second Thursday" every month and everyone who can make it should stop in at VFW Post 2503 for a good time.

Over the years we have had five planned reunions, at least every ten years beginning in 1979, then came the 20th, 30th, 40th and 45th just five years ago. We have compiled a slideshow of photos contributed by numerous members and their wives, thanks to them these images live on from each of those reunions and are now available for 172nd members and their families to enjoy.

VFW Membership:

If you are not currently a member of the VFW, you should consider joining this very worthwhile group that does so much for veterans. Post 2503 is a very nice facility with rooms available for receptions and group gatherings of all sizes. It has become the "Omaha Bar" for 172nd veterans in Nebraska.
