A Message from President Chuck Trout

I have called Clyde Easter and sent emails to Nile Stuart and Gordon Lowery thanking them for their service over the past two years. As you know, some elected not to serve another term as committeemen or they were not reelected. Please join me in welcoming Dennis Noes, (ER) Joe Ball and Dave Martin, (CR) and Bruce Monksman (WR) as the newly elected Committeemen of the Society. Also, congratulations to Robert Bailey and John Shirley for being reelected.

Meanwhile, I want to personally thank all of you for making this reunion a success. A special thank you to: John Shirley for the outstanding job as Master of Ceremony; Cath, Nile, Denise, and Monica for administering and promoting the "Support the Troops' Program; Ray for the great job he always does as treasurer and the professional job in handling the agendas and meetings; David Mills for his auditing and audit report: Lynn and Joe on the 'smooth' handling and preparation of awards; Congratulations to Tim Stoy on becoming the newly elected President of the 15th Infantry Regiment Association and thanks Tim for working with Jane to transfer the historical records of the Society to your facility; (Jane really appreciated the life membership the Society presented to her); Jerry, our chaplain who handled the Memorial service, and to his wife for the making and presentation quilts to the wounded warriors at the reunion; Henry Burke for his handling of the Sergeant of Arms responsibilities while he continued to recruit new members; Pennie Burke with her beautiful voice singing at the banquet; Dr. Lee and his wife's as they handed out books, written in Korean, about the Third Division in Korea; Rich Heller who provided tile boxes with the 3rd Infantry patch to the two top recruiters and two runner-ups; and the professional wisdom and input of Jerry Manley.

Robert Bailey, although not present, handled the nomination and election of Committeemen very smoothly: Carl and Joe Ball for the update on ads. We are the first Society to recognize German soldiers at a banquet thanks to Monika Stoy. Ladies and gentlemen, thanks to you, we had a successful reunion. Thank you ALL!

Echo Entertainment, a musical company of which I am associated, will hold a concert in November. All monies received will be send to Monika and Cath to sponsor a Society of the 3rd Division B-B-Q for all Wounded Soldiers at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington. Please update your email addresses as we now have all members of the Excom on computers. Again, I thank you and together we will move forward. THANKS, Chuck

Please review the attached email that I sent to General Lynch concerning the video he prepared for the reunion.

I want to thank you and CSM Andrews for the fine video you prepared for our reunion. The video combined with the wonderful presentation by LTC Brian Gale was well accepted and greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking time out of your important job to 'brighten up' our reunion. The soldiers that represented the Division were excellent examples of the men protecting our country and the future of our Society. Thank you again and please give our thank to CSM Andrews. We all look forward to seeing you next year in Georgia.

Blessing, Chuck
