VSO Benefits Meeting with Wives
Many, many thanks to
John Hurst, AMTA VSO and Larry Meade as we just completed an outstanding
reunion in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Regardless if it is called
informal or whatever, it was great! It was nice and relaxing and
everyone had a lot of fun. The site for the reunion was
The Holiday Inn & Suites at the Ameristar Casino.
Everything was set up perfect by the hotel staff and Mike McLaughlin
brought an abbreviated amount of AMTA memorabilia for everyone. The breakfast
which was included in the price of
the room was excellent as always.
Larry Meade arranged for a tour of
two of the airplanes, and regardless of a few glitches Larry made sure
it came off without a hitch. Everyone that went on the aircraft
tours truly enjoyed it. Many people said the aircraft tour alone
was worth the trip to Omaha.
This reunion was informal
which meant we had no meetings, no voting or
anything else. Which meant we had a lot of free time to spend
doing as we wanted. John did have a meeting with the wives on
Friday to make everyone aware of veteran's benefits. The wives
appreciated getting the information as it was and is valuable. We
all had dinner together at Tish's Cafe Thursday evening and it was a
great time. The food and service were great and we did not have to
spend an arm and a leg to have an excellent meal.

pictures will follow as soon as they are forwarded to us. Thanks
