Rattler/Firebird Reunion 2010
Where and When
The 2010 edition of the Rattler/Firebird Reunion was held Wednesday, May 12th to Sunday, May 16th, 2010 at the Sheraton Music City Hotel in Nashville and it was a huge success. Watch this space for more information, photos and video from the festivities. Until we get that done, here's the seating chart from the banquet.
Our guest speaker was Michael Durant, a retired CW4, who wrote a best selling book, In The Company of Heroes. This book tells the story that was depicted in the movie, Blackhawk Down. Durant was the command pilot of the MH-60 Blackhawk that was shot down on October 3, 1993 in Mogadishu, Somalia. He sustained very serious injuries in the crash and was captured and held as a POW for 11 days. Read more about Michael Durant here, or you can visit his web site at www.mikedurant.com.
