Reunion 2017 - Indianapolis, Indiana

We are going to celebrate our 50th Anniversary.

June 13-17, 2017

To all Diamond (1965-66) and Darkhorse (1966-73) personnel that served with us in Vietnam it is time to get together again.

IAs usual, we are gathering under the umbrella of the VHCMA (Vietnam Helicopter Crew Members Assoc.) and their annual gathering. The location for this year’s get together is Indianapolis, Indiana. The host hotel is the WYNDHAM INDIANAPOLIS WEST. The VHCMA has negotiated a fair rate of $xxxx /night, tax included. The info for hotel reservations is here.

The VHCMA reunion registration form is here. You DO NOT have to be a member of the Association to attend. I will ask that you pay the registration fees at the minimum. This helps the association cover the costs of the FREE beer, sodas, coffee, & water supplied in the main hospitality room. It also helps cover the cost of providing us w/ our own unit hospitality room.

So far, there are many of us planning on being there. The  ARPs (security) platoon and the Outcasts have stated they will be there in force (again), and challenge the other platoons from all years to do the same.

So, bring the family and make it a mini-vacation as well. We look forward to seeing and or meeting you.

Well, hope you can make it and looking forward to it. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions. Primary freq is .

Who's Going To Be There,  Indianapolis, Indiana June 13-17th, 2017.
