Pasco lo Be Scene oi Reunion of
Air Station Men From Five Slales
1 Over 150 former Pasco Naval
Air Station men from some five
states had already signified their
intention last week of attending
the first reunion, Sept, 27 and 28,
of all personnel attached to the
base during its war-time life. Jack
Gordon, former Sky Writer editor
and now a Seattle newspaperman,
is heading the committee of four
Seattle men who are promoting
the affair.
That the idea is catching on rap
idly is indicated by the tenor of
the letters which are coming in
to the Seattle headquarters at 1111
Seneca. Groups are being made
up for the trip to Pasco and all
are anticipating the pleasure of
seeing their buddies of war days
again and renewing the ties made
during their stays here.
Locally, plans are being made
to fill every hour of the two days
so full of fun and other interest
ing events that every vet will feel
well repaid for the trip here. Some
of the plans are still in the making
such as the possibility of getting
the famous Jackie Souters band
to return here for a dance. This
band was a most popular outfit in
war times here and has now been
reassembled and is playing in Se
attle: Banquets, picnics, dances,
carnivals, athletic events are only
some of the things planned for the
Housing will be in the hands or
the Junior Chamber and will be
accomplished by appealing to lo
cal homes. Prospects are that
there may be as many as 1,000 re
turn for the event. If this is re
alized even in good part, the job
will be a big one. ’
But housing is not the main
thing the boys are thinking of as
is indicated by Fred Marquand of
Bellngham, who says, “I will plan
on going over. I think I have a
place to stay but if not—what the
hell—the reunion’s only for two
days-—who’s got time to sleep?”
William G. Zehm of the Spo
kane fire department writes: “I
think it is a swell idea getting to
gether again and I wouldn’t miss a
chance of seeing my old pals so
try and keep me from being there!
I am sure you remember me at
the firehouse from 1942 until I
went over in 1944. I have been
to a number of places but I have
found none that would compare
with Pasco Naval Air.”
Gerald O. Summers, Seattle, ad
resses the four Jacks: “Just who
would think - that the four Jacks
would think up such a swell idea
as a reunion like this? Sure
would appreciatte it if you fel
lows would drop me a line telling
all about the reservations and
what else a fellow has to do. I
suppose headquarters will be at
the Bucket of Blood.”
“I want you to count me in on
being there ’cause I’d sure like to
attend the reunion'and am send
ing you my name and address,”
says Chester Smith of Washtucna.
The S.P.s will be there too, but
in different mood than of old as
indicated by the letter from Chief
H. T. Armstrong of Seattle, Ar

‘if you will write me a few of the
high points will pass the word.”
C. M. Crowe, Sunnyside, oflers
his wholehearted help and states:
“If there is anything I can do to|
help in any way, feel free to call

give my regards to Charley Han-t

others who may remember the old‘

Local arrangements are in the‘
hands of several service clubs and;
every etfort is being made to make
this first affair successful and enm
joyable to the visitors. And plans
are already being talked of its be-‘
coming an annual event that will
draw men and women from ev
