May 1991 Letter

 

TO ALL FORMER RATTLERS:

The first "Rattler" reunion was held on June 7th, 8th, and 9th, at Fort Rucker, Alabama. There were only four of us there, but we had a hell of a good time! The four were (Lt.) Dennis Hand, Ron (Radar) Seabolt, Larry (Smitty) Smith, and Donnie (Prof) Profit.

We all agreed that another, bigger reunion was in order. We have tentatively agreed on February, 1993 - that's '93, not '92. We also want this reunion to be a little more centrally located for everyone's benefit, and are thinking of Memphis, Tenn.

In order to make it more successful, we need your help in locating other Rattlers. Maybe you can remember a hometown of someone, or some other way we can locate them. We presently have good addresses on 15 Rattlers. Our latest find is Randy Billings, Rattler 1-7. Here are some additional names we would really like information on:

Major George Jackson SP/4 Louis M. Becker
Captain Dave Carothers SP/4 Bob Falk
Captain Harold L. Bowen SP/4 James W. Wardlow
W.O. Conrad Howard SP/4 Arthur R. Taylor
W.O. Beryl Scott SP/4 John Calvacca
W.O. Wally Dunning SP/4 John Cervinski
SSG Lawrence M. Lackey SP/4 Dennis A. Kuhlmann
SP/5 Stanley L. Larson  

If you have information on any of these names, or any others, please contact either Ron Seabolt or Larry Smith at the address on the enclosed roster.

With 20 months to go, we hope that everyone will make plans to attend. We will continue to be in touch.

Clear Left and Clear Right,
Ron Seabolt
Larry Smith
