To all Diamond (1965-66) and Darkhorse (1966-73) personnel that served with us in Vietnam it is time to get together again.
As usual, we are gathering under the umbrella of the VHCMA (Vietnam Helicopter Crew Members Assoc.) and their annual gathering. The location for this year’s get together is Reno, Nevada. The host hotel is the NUGGET CASINO RESORT. The VHCMA has negotiated a fair rate of $98.00 /night, tax/fees included. The info for the hotel is:www.nuggetcasinoresort.com.
The VHCMA reunion registration form will be posted when made available. You DO NOT have to be a member of the Association to attend. I will ask that you pay the registration fees at the minimum. This helps the association cover the costs of the FREE beer, sodas, coffee, & water supplied in the main hospitality room. It also helps cover the cost of providing us w/ our own unit hospitality room. VHCMA Reunion Info
So far, there are many of us planning on being there. So, bring the family and make it a mini-vacation as well. We look forward to seeing and or meeting you.
Note: When you sign up for Bus Trips during the Reunion please check with your friends that you hang around with during the Reunions to insure everyone is in agreement to take that particular trip. Should you change your mind about going on that Bus Trip after arrival at the Reunion you may, or may not get a refund. VHCMA has changed how they manage Bus Trips by allowing the Convention Activities Management Company to do this so refunds are untested. Just be sure to plan with your friends. Here is a link to review the Bus Trips.
Well, we hope you can make it and looking forward to seeing you there! Please feel free to contact Gary Brewer if you have questions. Primary freq isDarkhorseControl@DarkhorseVietnam.org.
We are on Facebook, too! Just "Click" the Facebook Icon in the upper left corner.
