2004 LAS VEGAS REUNION REPORT
Click on individual photos above for close-ups and information
The first 6/27th Artillery Vietnam Veterans Reunion was held on Wednesday, September 15 and Thursday, September 16, 2004 at the Excalibur Resort Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The "class" photo above shows all those in attendance. The Reunion started on Wednesday with a welcome "hospitality" suite gathering. Refreshments were available throughout the afternoon and evening. It was an informal time to meet and greet hold friends and to make new ones. The fun conversations could be heard throughout the 28th floor.
Thursday evening the group met in the Normandy Room for a sit-down four-course dinner. Les Higa led the group in a round of toasts. Once again, the program was informal with Reed McDonald and John Wavra conducting a short after-dinner presentation. Round-the-room self-introductions were made. Fallen comrades and friends not present were remembered with a moment of silence after their names were read aloud. The floor was opened for anyone to comment, remember a friend or incident, tell a humorous story or just state how pleased they were to have made the journey to attend the Reunion.
Photos were taken, stories told and retold and at the end of the evening all present reluctantly said goodbyes. Overall, it was a delightful time and it was the unanimous opinion that this should not be last Reunion. "Time will tell..." [J. Wavra]
