arrows38Greetings to All,

Thank you to all who attended the 55th annual reunion. Much fun was had by all. A special thanks to those who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make this happen. Hope to see you all next year for the 56th!

For those who missed the 5th Group Reflashing Ceremony on the 23rd of March.  We have linked it to a recorded video and you can view it by clicking HERE.  It is a once in a lifetime historical event with many SF Brothers and Sisters participating. 

Take Care!

Hey Folks,Chapter 38, SSFA

As Da Smurf use to say, "If you weren't there, you missed it!".  We are saying thanks for attending the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) Reunion 2016. It was great to have you here.  We had a fantastic time visiting and reminiscing with you; our SF Brothers and Sisters.  Our group of active, retired, and former SF Brothers, Sisters and Families is like none other.  

There are too many folks to recognize individually but I believe a Special Thanks is due to Frank McFadden and Mike Cunningham who busted their fourth points of contact to make it happen from the Chapter's side of things.   A further thanks goes to Joel and Tara Pruitt, Karen Stone, Betty Amaker, Heidi Hubbard, Wendell Green, Mike and Darcy Stocker, Frank Wisniewski, John Lane, Joe Shakeenab, Kurt Arrowsmith, and Parry Baer who went the extra mile to get things done. 

The Unit's Leadership deserves a Special Tip of the Beret as well, for without their support, there would have been a whole lot less number of activities to enjoy and participate in. The Command Element and Soldiers of The Legion have always contributed to this event in a superb manner.  They are truly "The Quiet Professionals".

Again, we thank everyone who attended this annual event; for making it successful by continuing to be part of 5th Group's History.

Take Care and Stay Very Safe! quill 38
