Det-4 Reunion 2005

A good time was had by all at the first Det-4 Reunion held at the Chicago Hilton on August 13, 2005. To the best of my knowledge no one passed out, was arrested or indicted. Dead Bug and Carrier Quals remained in virtual reality. A virtual reality Steelthrust was condcuted - the tested unit passed.

Everyone noticed that everyone else had gotten older. Everyone fit the required height and weight limits, and looked good in uniform. No one failed the PFT. Everyone got outstanding on their fitness reports, except Zimmer and Swaim, who had to be rousted out of the rack and induced to attend at the last minute through a combination of threats and blandishments.
________________________

Four spouses attended, and were a welcome addition. This did not cut into anyones carousing time since the wives departed by 2030, but no one had enough energy to carouse anyway.
_________________________

A number of us have retired, and started with new companies or started our own businesses. Retiring early and often was a recurring effort. Swain is a Judge and Wardlow a State Representative, the rest are titans of business and industry.
________________________

We discussed Steelthrust, and the possibility of starting a small part time consulting firm where we would exercize a Battalion using Steelthrust Lite, a prototype Steelthrust war game. We have a good track record in conducting these exercizes, and it would be interesting to get them going again, perhaps initially on a volunteer basis.
________________________

Former Det CO's Magilligan and Barney will call the date and location for the next reunion. We debated whether it was best to have one every year, or every 3 to 5 years. Arguments for fewer reunions mean that everyone will try harder to get there. This is not a democracy - the CO's decide.
______________________

Next time eveyone will make a strong effort to get everyone there. Virtual reality punishments for non attendance will be increased.

Sir, Good to hear from friends of Det-4. I am sorry to say I will miss this particular drill, and as far as the penalty for missing drill, you're too late for I am already activated and playing in the big sandbox as we speak. I try and stay in touch with MGySgt Harper as much as I can, it looks like I'll be here through mid October. Sounds like I'll miss one heck of a good time, wish I could be there, please have a drink on me! I hope the turn out is a great one, you'll have to let me know how it went. Tell all the Marines from the Det I said hello and give them a big SEMPER FI from the 1stSgt.

Take care,

Craig,

First of all, Thanks for establishing this roster. The note George Braun sent the other day really captures the essence of how I felt about seeing everyone on Saturday, but I would like to add my two cents worth. Mitch had his own way of demonstrating and expressing his enthusiasm, but we all know he was an inspiration to each of us as our career with the USMCR developed. His demise, even though the process was unmercifully drawn out, is a clear message to all of us 60 (+/-) year old warriors that we are not invincible! Your idea of a reunion is a great idea and even though I have become a tea totler, I look forward to being one of the liars.

In addition to my work e-mail address, I an adding my personal e-mail as the one I use for my personal business: hill.byron@att.net


Semper Fi,
Byron



Nice to see the Det-4 members at General Waters funeral. Sorry it was such a sad occasion.

We should probably do a reunion drill weekend sometime. Date and time are open. I am thinking KISS. Just meet at a hotel bar one Saturday night, drink, and tell lies. In other words, a typical drill weekend.

Semper Fi

Craig Hullinger


I didn't think that after almost a year of getting used to the idea of the world without Mitch that Saturday's service would get to me. Wrong. I'd like to think that I could inspire someone like George Conn to say those kind of things when I leave this vale but I know better. As a LtCol we all knew how he could lead. He had us drilling 2-3 times a month getting ready for Bold Guard, once for pay. The Chaplain talked about the true friends in life that it makes no difference that you don't see 'em very often. That was Mitch Waters. I'm so grateful that I went out to see him a couple of times this last year. He would have done it for me. S/F loa

P.S. It took something like this to get all of us together. It was good to see you guys too.

To All,

I was very saddened to hear of MGen Waters passing, and sorry I could not attend his memorial service. I certainly regarded him to be the kind of leader I'd love to serve under. He was a Marine's Marine, and we lost a great asset. Always inspirational and motivating, I'm sure the PLCs, NROTC and OCS candidates, who attended the Chicago Future Officer Mess Nights, were influenced by his leadership. I know I was.

Semper Fi,

Woz

P.S. If you happen to plan a reunion around the 4th of July this year, I will be in the Chicagoland area for the birth of my daughter Julie's second child, and my grandson Nicholas Wozniak's 1st Birthday. Yes, thanks to my son Ron, there will be more Wozniaks!
Hawaii would be a great location for a reunion, and I'd be glad to set it up, if anyone was interested. Anyone interested? It would certainly be a non-KISS event. Always wanted to do something like that around the Pro Bowl, but for the second year in a row I'll be in the ROK instead.
