Greetings to all of my Recon brothers out there. This is just a little update regarding our upcoming 50th anniversary of our time with Bravo Company, 1st Recon Bn. in Vietnam and to celebrate the Marine Corps 244th birthday.

Dennis Atchison & Windie L Atchison are hard at work putting this little gathering together for us and need our help.


I'm just trying to lend a hand & get the word out to as many of us as I can reach. They need a head count of rooms at the Plaza Hotel Las Vegas, NV. We will have a suite there on Fri - Sun Nov. 8-10, 2019. The more rooms we reserve the better our rate so contact Dennis as soon as you can to let him know you are coming & how many rooms you need.


Also let anyone else know who might be interested to also contact him. He could also use a little help if you can send him whatever you can afford to help get things going. Contact him through his link above or if you have his email or phone for more info. Jim Carrabis is working on the cake for us. More info will be coming as we get closer.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again.
Semper Fi brothers!


More Info Coming Soon!

See you all at the Reunion
