2014 reunion information is posted on our reunion page.

Use the link above to be taken to our reunion page.  Where you can download the registration form and the plan of the day.  The cut off date is August 24, 2014. So please get your registration into Don Welch as soon as possible.  He needs confirmation on your part that you are coming so that he can book the planned activities.

Someone at this past reunion has come up with a very good idea of putting a page on our web site to submit a request to host a reunion. That page is now on on this site and is called just that: "Host A Reunion?"  

The plan after this years business meeting is: 2014 San Diego CA ; 2015 Philidelphia PA and 2016 Dallas TX.

The 2017 reunion needs a host which could be held in the State of Iowa and this reunion needs to be voted on at our next business meeting.  To our knowledge we have never had a reunion in the state or in this area of our country.  We have 24 crewmembers currently living in Iowa.  Surely one of you will step up to the plate and be the host.  Contact Chuck or Art for any help in making your decision.   

We have now located over 1475 former crew members. To keep this number growing we need your help. If you are visiting this site for the first time and you are a former crew member please go to the Welcome Page and fill out a "Found Martians" form and submit it.  We enjoy Welcoming back aboard Found Martians.

Download and print these cards out to hand out to fellow Veterans.
