2017  Reunion 

This year's Reunion will be held at the Crowne Plaza Melbourne Oceanfront, 18-22 Oct 17, in conjunction with the Pedro Helicopter Pilots Ass'n and That Others May Live Foundation (TOMLF). Along with other events, the local Patrick AFB Rescue Unit is providing us with some interesting things on base. On the evening of the 21st, the Air Rescue Banquet and Ball, will provide another great opportunity for our members to meet with many active duty Rescue men and women as various awards are presented. We had more than 200 people attend last year's Ball. We will update y'all as plans are finalized.


The following events have been finalized. After our usual Welcome Buffet on Wednesday, we will road trip to the Kennedy Space Center on Thursday and dine that evening at the Sage restaurant.  On Friday we will go to Patrick AFB and visit the Rescue squadrons there and have a chance to share Rescue experiences with our young counterparts.  That evening, we will dine at the Squid Lips restaurant in Melbourne. On Saturday we will have the awards banquet and ball.
