Here is how to sign up and register Note that primary hotel is full


The intent of this discussion page is to better coordinate our efforts to make this next 3/4 Cav reunion the best ever. The primary mission of the reunion is to have a good time with old friends. This always happens, big time. The more Centaurs that attend, the more opportunities there are for rekindling old friendships and memories.

A secondary mission of the reunion has been to gather more data, photos, stories, videos and such to continue to build our great Centaur Legacy in the form of the Centaurs in Vietnam website.

Email notes concerning the reunion will be posted here.

53 Centaurs Currently signed up as of 20 July 2016

Dawn Patrol Round Table

Take a look at the Dawn Patrol Mission Discussion page. Lots of discussion already.

Joe Owen, Scout Platoon Leader and Aerorifle Platoon Commander (1968-69) and long time supporter of the Centaur Legacy, is suggesting that we get serious about having a formal meeting at the Harrisburg, PA Reunion of those interested in the "Dawn Patrol" missions. It would start with an opening free style discussion that would be audio taped. Once all memory cells are in order we would then do a video taped conference based loosely on the audio session. Other 3/4 Cav members, like Jerry Headly, have expressed an interest in telling about their involvement with the Dawn Patrol missions. We may be able to talk journalist and photographer Jerry Jarvis into assisting with this.

There are other War Story events that would be worthy of doing this kind of thing, like the An Duc Extraction for example, but would be totally dependent on the level of preplanned attendance, and a volunteer to honcho it.

Signed up so far: Joe Owen, Carl Burns, Bruce Powell, Stan Allen, Jerry Headley,
