    Here are the details for the upcoming 467th BG Reunion, plus a little announcement from the Associations President...

    ".....Five years ago, it looked as if we were ‘toast,’ as an organization, but several individuals stepped forward then, and in the time since, to serve in Director and officer position, and in less formal roles ‘without titles.’ It is clear that we all encourage one another, and still have energy and focus to persist as an organization. While we have reluctantly adjusted to the inevitable loss of the veterans and their spouses—the youngest WW II veterans are now 90 years old— we have also been blessed to have substantial numbers achieve that age and considerably more.

    We are excitedly filling in the small details for our upcoming reunion in DC, anticipating that some of the vets will still be able to attend, hale and hearty. We know this will not last too much longer, but are delighted we can still say that, and are committed to making the most of our time with our heroic, authentic "Rackheath Aggies". In 2012, we would not have presumed to be in this wonderful position today.

    Our association persists because significant numbers of people in our ‘family’ value the history we share. Our ways of doing this will continually evolve, while our gratitude for, and pride in those who served in the 467th Bomb Group only gets stronger......
