Greetings all, as you may be aware ROMAD.COM heads up the annual xmas elves box drive for the JTACs we have in theater. We just passed a major milestone today. 2500 lbs of goodies are heading into theater. Some has already arrived and alot more are on the way. Many thanks to the Blue Star Mothers and all the other personnel that supported our boys this year. I will post more information as it becomes available.
LtCol (Ret) Dan Drejza, Former 25th ASOS Commander at Wheeler AAF Hawaii will be interned at the Arlington National Cemetery on 13 November 2013 at 0900 hrs (EST). Starting location will be the administration building. All attendees are to meet there NLT 0830 so that all vehicles can enter the cemetery at the same time.

Greetings all Elves or Wanna-bes. Its that time again where we need to pull together and get boxes shipped to all the guys in theater. Please send me an email with Elf Volunteer as the subject and I will add you to the listing. The Chiefs are going to get me the current listing and we should be able to kick off by next week some time.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.

If you are a TACP out of state and will be here the night before, please coordinate with a 146 ASOS member. We can arrange for you to be with the unit as it moves to the different locations. We can also work some kind of arrangements if you wish to stay.
From Rod Dyer “…Any old ROMADS, JTACS or 1C4′s near Sidney OH are welcome to come to Big Four Crossfit at 1000 on July 4. We will be doing the “Bradley” hero WOD in memory of our fallen brother. Our plan is to make this an annual event to raise money for the association.”
