2003 JOINT 



Reunion Chairman George Martin and his committee did an outstanding  job of putting this event together. I think everybody had a great time, I know I did.

The dinner was VERY VERY good, the hotel catering is to commended .

I enjoyed the two tours I took, Virginia City -- Carson City, the Emerald Bay cruise on Tahoe. Thank you John McLaughlin.

The dinner program went off flawlessly. The Master of Ceremonies  CMSgt George Moses was super as were the speakers, Lt Commander Leigh Armistead, U.S. Navy, Guest Speaker, Lt Col Robert Nuanes, U.S. Airforce, AWACS briefer. This all took place in front of a 20 by 40 foot garrison flag.

A Gathering


Personnel Once Assigned or Employed With Units Engaged


United States Air Force Airborne Radar & Surveillance Programs

1953 to Present

  This historic gathering of the world's finest Airborne Radar & Surveillance members (ground, air, civil servants and contractor representatives, and their invited guests) from the Air Force's top AEW&C, RECON and ACW flying organizations, past and present, is being held in Northern Nevada's Resort Destination of Choice, the Silver Legacy in Reno, May 18-21, 2003.

  This 1,720 room luxury hotel, resort, casino and convention facility already is putting out the "Red Carpet" for our gathering. Since our initial contact with staff personnel to the present date, these professionals have bent backwards to make certain we have a convention that will live in our memories forever. In this facility, attendees will experience an unparalleled offering of restaurants, entertainment, casino action, and superb customer service.

  Located in the center of eleven western states, Reno is the hub for west coast recreation to include a variety of outdoor venues, and the dramatic offerings of the Sierra Nevada mountains.

  Rand McNally named the Reno/Tahoe area number one in the United States for outdoor recreation - all of which will be available to attendees during their stay. Superb nightlife, star studded entertainment, historic sites, magnificent dining, and much more. There is no better place for historic sites and site seeing than Northern Nevada. Attractions include the world famous Ponderosa Ranch, Historic Virginia City, the National Automobile Museum, and of course the beautiful, majestic Lake Tahoe.

  As you will soon see in this packet, the Reunion 2003 Committee has gone to great lengths to ensure not only that this Reunion is one of the best you'll ever attend, but also that all of these luring attractions are part of the offerings during your attendance.

It is therefore requested that you please show your gratitude and advance thanks to the staff of the Silver Legacy for laying out their "Red Carpet" to our organizations by considering them first in your destination choice of stay for this event. The convention and meeting planners of the Silver Legacy have gone above and beyond in making certain that each and every detail pertaining to our event are carried out to our desired expectations and complete satisfaction.
