The Purpose of this site - is to help rekindle old friendships and start new ones through communications and annual Reunions.  Perhaps even remember the good times with people who shared a common perilous military experience a long time ago, in a place far, far away.   

Never Forget  - Men, women and children perished from 102 countries some illustrated by flags


God Bless America, those that perished on 9-11, the families that endured the tragedy, and heroic first responders and passengers of UA Flight 93.

Many still suffer the emotional and physical scars from the 9-11 inferno.
