Diamond Anniversary Reunion Survey

If I have a current e-mail address for you on my list, you should have received the following e-mail survey today. PLEASE RESPOND ASAP! If you didn't get one, please let me know your name & address at .

During early May, Hank Baker convened his local planning committee for their initial discussion of the Diamond Anniversary Reunion of Dover C-133 Crew Colleagues in the spring of 2014 at Dover AFB. They need some input from YOU!!

The goal is to provide the incentive for those around the country to travel to Dover for this One Last Celebration of our Camaraderie! BOTH FLIGHT CREWS & GROUND CREWS!

For openers, we have four simple questions:

1. Would you prefer: (it makes a difference in expense, but this is probably our last Hoorah!)

    a. The 2010 Maxi-Reunion model that took place over a full weekend with all the trimmings, or…

    b. The simple Mini-Reunion of 2012 that took place in one afternoon in the hangar?

2. Would you prefer the Reunion to be:

    a. Mid-May, 2014, or…

    b. Mid-June, 2014?

3. How certain are you that you would attend?

    a. Yes. Very Likely (will put it on my calendar and plan to come).

    b. Maybe. Really want to, but too early to tell.

    c. No. Wish I could, but doubt I can make it.

4. If you plan to attend, how many guests would you bring in addition to yourself?

    a. None

    b. One

    c. Two

    d. Three

    e. More than three

We want to encourage your children, grandchildren, family members and friends to be a part of the grand finale that began some 60 years ago, and is now an Air Force Legend: The Crews of the C-133 Cargomaster heavy cargo transport!
