    I’ve never been to a reunion but my wife are seriously considering this one we’ve never been to Nashville and it sounds like a good time. I was always afraid because I wouldn’t know anyone and I don’t do well with crowds and people . Sp/4 James Lytle I was in TayNinh, DiAn and Long Binh.

      I won’t be attending this reunion but truly believe you and your wife would enjoy the experience!

      I’ve been to three and enjoyed each one. Every reunion is unique. I recommend you go to one before we stop holding the Spur reunions.

      Thank you for your service and for being with the Spurs!!!
