Thanks to all who attended the 2014 reunion and to Pat and Connie Taylor for organizing a wonderful event. The accommodations were great and the dining in Charleston was outstanding. The auction raised $2500.00 plus. Everyone had a great time and as far as I know everyone arrived home safely.
I encourage all who served at any time during the 31 years that Goldsborough was commissioned to plan on attending the 2015 reunion in Reno. Renew friendships, remember the good times, meet some great people and have a really good time.
