Northern Kentucky Reunion Photos June 24, 2012, day 4.

The following post was put on the forum 5 days after the reunion event in N. KY.  I thought I would share it out here since many do not visit the forum.  By the way, the forum is full of great information and pictures and may be the best secret place on the website for some great material.

The June 24, 2012 optional event was a Major League Baseball Game featuring the Cincinnati Reds and the Minnisota Twins. We had 52 people registered to come to the game and our men were asked to be the Color Guard in the pre-game ceremonies and our entertainer Marie Mazziotti auditioned for and was the singer of the National Anthem. The men of the Color Guard were all from the 1940 decade and included Norman Terrell, Chas Staples, Louis Jagucki (a plank owner) and Chet Chernac. click to view honor guard and singing by our Marie Maziotti.

They all did great! I was so proud!

 

Chet was so happy to do this and he was overwhelmed at the event at Wright Patterson Air Force Base and told me there that he never realized that he could enjoy himself so much.  As he described his feelings tears came down his cheek.  What a wonderful man!  Chet went to be with the Lord not long after our reunion there.  I am so thankful that I got to know him so well.  This is the great value of reunions to me.  The people I have gotten to know and love are the best and have enriched my life.
