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.
