Women’s Luncheon

Greetings!  The JCSE-VA Women’s Luncheon will be held on Wednesday, the 30th of November at 11:30 in the Hospitality Room at the Hilton Tampa Airport Westshore.  I encourage all the Women of JCSE, past and present, to attend this FREE event!  When registering for the Reunion, please ensure you check the option for the LADIES HONOR BUFFET.  This will be a time when we can share ideas on how we can get the women of JCSE to not only become members, but also to contribute to an organization that does so much for the entire JCSE Family.  We will also hear from LtCol Paulani Zuniga, the 1st Female Deputy Commander!

Thank you, and don’t forget to register to attend so we can get a head count.

I look forward to meeting you all,

Maureen A. Fuller, MSgt, USAF (Ret)
JCSE 1991 – 1994
Women’s Committee Chair

Reunion Dates Changed

In the past you would have received a letter (invitation) in the mail announcing Reunion 2016 by now. In fact, we were about ready to do just that when JCSE made a proposal that we couldn’t refuse. Soon after COL Johnston and CSM Allen arrived, they began making plans for a “Founders Day” to be held on December 4th or as appropriate near that date to commemorate the activation of JCSE. Last year the commemoration ceremony included completing the design of the circle of flags in front of JCSE Headquarters with bronze plaques that depict the five decades since activation. Also included were smaller plaques denoting significant events during the period. Founders Day 2016 will include placing another decade era plaque and formal banquet on December 2. This formal affair will roll the JCSE holiday events into one major celebration. With that in mind the Board of Directors hope that you would agree that it would be appropriate to combine reunion activities and join with the unit as they celebrate the fifty fifth (55) year of providing outstanding communications all over the globe.

We are aware that this falls right between Thanksgiving and Christmas. But, we are encouraged by the initial response and that you will feel as strongly as we do and rearrange your plans and join us here in December for this special dedication.
