I was just thinking about our reunion: shipmates, TARAWA, the beautiful atrium and casino at Sam's Town, the free breakfast buffets, cocktail parties, slot machines and gambling tables, bowling tournament, Top Gun competition, Billy Bob's Steakhouse, meeting shipmates and sharing free breakfasts together, taking your breakfast coffee to the casino with your buddies, impromptu gatherings and discussions of anything and everything with our shipmates, the Vegas Strip, the Vegas shows, guest speakers, USS Tarawa CVA-40 shipmates, sharing memories, growing old together, free casino drinks, hitting a jackpot, long fun days and nights, making new friends, growing old sea stories, our speakers, Reunion Hosts David McNair, Keith Brownmiller, and Charles Petrach, walking in the atrium with spouse and shipmates, people laughing, the famous Sam's Town Laser Show, the wonderful smells as you walk by Sam's restaurants, sitting down at Sam's and just taking everything in, the calming sounds of the indoor waterfalls, the enchanted howling of the wolf in front of his cave, the bear and other mechanical animals, screech of the American Eagle, new and old shipmates coming together and enjoy each other's company, putting your feet in the swimming pool, just to mention a few fun things at our reunion.

Yea Rick, I'm looking forward to this being my 1st reunion, and to meeting up with some "old" shipmates, and to finally meet all of you from the Tarawa Forum face to face. Hopefully I'll be there for 2016 .

You will be missed. You still have time to change your mind. Just think of the bragging rights if you were to take 1st in both events.
