Sheila Kendall has posted a message on the guest book reference a mini-reunion
for the men of the 175th during next summer's Vietnam Helicopter Crewman's Association reunion in Phoenix, Arizona, on June 19-23, 2002.

Here's the text of the message for those of you who have not seen it:
 

              ATTENTION!!!
              This message is to let the "boys" of the 175th AHC (Outlaws &
              Mavericks) know that there is going to be a mini-reunion for them at the
              Vietnam Helicopter Crewman's Association reunion in Phoenix,
              Arizona, on June 19-23, 2002.

              If any of you have any questions about the organization, check out the
              VHCA website. It tells all the information on the association, about the
              reunion and how to join (if you wish to). It is not necessary to be a
              member of the association to attend the mini-reunion, but you will need
              to register for the reunion. There are currently 18 175th guys as
              members.

              This mini-reunion will be open to ALL Outlaws and Mavericks. Please
              pass this along to those you kow who may not have a computer. If you
              have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I will repost this
              closer to reunion time.
