Fm: William Bender Sent: Mon, 12NO01 10:45 AM Subj: 2002 reunio
Dear Elder:
The reunion plans for 2002 are under way!  The Holiday Inn - Grantville has confirmed our reservation for the next reunion,( September 13th-15th,  2002).
This location should be ideal for everyone. It is only 15 minutes away from the Harrisburg PA airport and transportation to the hotel may be proved for  those that require it.  There is an indoor swimming pool, restaurant, bar/lounge, and very nice rooms. Our rate will be $79.00 a day and we need to confirm room registration ASAP.  Attendees are to advise registration that they are part of the Det 27/DET 4-4 group.

The normal rate is $105. per day as you will see when one visits the abv website.

Things to do-
Hershey Park will still be open and a lot of fun to visit!  We can get a group rate for tickets for those so inclined.  There's also the Hershey Chocolate factory tour (FREE) and you get a Hershey Bar after riding on the tram!  Plenty of savings available on candy in the gift shop.
Located on the same grounds is the Hershey Museum. Very interesting stuff in there to see concerning early Pennsylvania and Native Americans.
There are two golf courses conveniently located nearby and while I'm not a golfer I understand the courses are well laid out and inexpensive. 
Mike Fisher is in charge of the GOLF outing. For those who want to golf, please send email to Mike at:  
Shopping, a.k.a. saving us money!  Yes there's a huge factory outlet located next to Hershey Park.  I noticed that there was an ATM there so that you can make a deposit to your savings account from all of the money you can save.
Better yet I actually found a few Men's Stores there!
Lancaster County (Amish Country), for those that would like to see real Amish, Lancaster County is only about 30 minutes away. You get to not only see real Amish working farms, but to sample local cuisine. (Shoe-fly pie,  scrapple, and only God knows what else!).
There is also a nice automobile museum within Hershey featuring antique cars.
For the hardcore veterans you'll only be 15 minutes away from Ft. Indiantown Gap. There's a nice museum there, PX for us retirees, and you can watch an assorted type of aircraft taking off and landing. This is an
old time Army base with real wooden barracks, coal stoves for heating and hot water, and still in use by the PA National Guard.
The Saturday night festivities are still in the planning stage but we have the Hospitality room from Friday September 13 through Sunday 15th for free!
I'll be making contact with folks at the Penn National Race Track and the local American Legion to see which place provides the best meal and pricing. I will also shortly send along a few other suitable hotels at
cheaper prices for those that would like to stay nearby.
Also, I hope to shortly confirm the site for the Saturday breakfast get together. There's a nice restaurant about ten minutes away that can accommodate our group without panicking when 50, 60, or more people descent  upon them.
I need to confirm our room requirements within the next two weeks so if we can get an estimate of the number of people attending it would be helpful.
Watch for more information concerning our 2002 get together!

Fm: Michael Fisher Sent: Mon, 12NO01 7:12 PM Subj: RE: 2002 REUNION INFO El,
It may a little early to commit, but go ahead and count me in. Of all the activities you cited, I noticed the glaring omission of my favorite one--golf. If anyone is interested, I know, for a fact, that there are quite a few excellent golf courses in the Hershey area. If there is enough interest, I could arrange an outing. So, let me know, if there are any other golfers in the group, and I will set something up. Mike
Fm: David H. Wollman Sent: Sun, 11NO01 2:48 PM Subj: Re: Det 27 & 4-4 MASTER ROSTER as of 11 Nov 2001 Al: Thanks for the roster. I see you have me listed twice, with different spellings of last name. It should be WOLLMAN, not WOOLMAN.  I was O2 all the time there, not O1-O2 nor O2-O3 as the two listing have it. I served DET 53 as XO & then CO from Nov 63 to Mar 65, when COLS. Barton & Butler sent me out to Iran to assume command of two units (SOU and SRU units) there in Teheran & Mashad, filling in between two Majors, one before  & one after me; there I served from MAR 65 until AUG 65, when I finished my two-year active tour. I became a Captain in Reserves in 66 (I was on the list for CAPT in AUG 65 & would have made it in a month had I gone indefinite, but I declined that honor). DET 53 was also known as SOU 21 & had moved to Manzarali Station earlier in 1963, before I got there, from Diyabikar. When I left in MAR 65 I recommended that it be disbanded if they could not show that we were doing something of value (and hence save the taxpayers' money), & learned in AUG 65 when I stopped off enroute home to the States that the disbanding orders had just come in. That is probably why you seemed puzzled about DET 53 when we spoke by phone - it no longer existed when you were there. I spent my two day "vacation" there arranging for my men to be reassigned to other units in our double system (SOU and SRU). The DET 17 you mention for John Anderson was an SRU; in Iran I had both types. I went on active duty in AUG 63 but had to spend time at Offcier's Basic
School, Ft. Gordon, GA first. I see some familiar names here & will enjoy looking thru the roster.  (BTW I finished my PhD in History in 1970 and have taught for 35 years, at Knox College in IL for four and here at Geneva College in PA for 31, the last 28 as chairperson of the Dept of History, Political Science, and Sociology. My wife Ann has been the registrar here for the last 17 years. We retire the end of this academic year and plan, Lord willing, to spend the Fall Semester 2002 teaching at the Lithuanian Christian College in Klaipeda, Lithuania. Our son has a PhD in Physics and works for the Dept of Commerce/NIST; our daughter died at age 20 as result of medical depression (suicide), eleven years ago (we had adopted her from Korea at age 3).)

gH, Here is a foto about 100 miles north of Fairbanks on the tundra. The mud ride was about 25 miles south of Denali. Both places we did some gold panning, but not enough to break even. South of Denali had some good Grayling fishing in many streams. I haven't heard back from Jones, Pietrowiak, nor Modisette yet. They should have received the CD a few days ago. I told them I'm going to Hershey next year and I would make sure that they would have depends, walkers, or Geritol or whatever else "old" geezers would need.

Fm: Sent: Fri, 09NO01 10:49 AM Subj: Only In America When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that  ball-point pens would not work in zero gravity.  To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 Billion to develop a pen that writes in  zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300C.

Hi John & Ramona,  Apparently someone fumbled my instructions & the Memory Book CD never made its way to Mission Viejo.  Oh, well, the fret is over as I just mailed you the CD-R with instructiuons on who you are to mail it to next, etc.   I hope that the two of you enjoy it.
