What an outstanding turn out for Charlie Company's Year 2001 Reunion - 45 Troopers including a few sons. Tremendous credit goes to Jim Dennison and his fellow 1st Platoon helper, John Bauler, for organizating one terrific Reunion.  It was very obvious that Charlie Company's camaraderie is completely intact as everyone had an excellent time together. It was also noted that Charlie Company's fine women (34 in attendance) possessed the same "Old Reliable" spirit that is still alive and well that once thrived under Colonel Tutwiler's command.
 

Saturday afternoon - July 21st.  Prior to the eveining's dinner/festivities, several Charlie Company troopers are socializing while some are checking out our Unit's Web Site via Mike Cramer's lap top computer by Mike Reynolds (black t-shirt), the computer wizard responsible for this Web Site's creation.  There's Rollie Gangler, with the extremely gray hair and holding a beer (what a surprise - harhar), talking with Tony Caliari. There's 1st Platoon's Lt. Lynn Hunt at the back in the gold shirt; there's James Nall in the baseball cap and Stan Cockerell standing (blue and white shirt).
 

A few of 2nd Platoon's Hot Chicks - Left: Linda Cockerell, Marge Massaro (Rollie Gangler's very best and probably only friend - harhar) and Meg Reynolds.
