In October 2006, 17 former members (and wives) of the 85th and 113th Fighter Squadrons  gathered at Wright-Patterson AFB, OH for a second reunion. We had hoped for a larger number, but age, health, and deaths are taking a heavy toll of our numbers. We, who did make it, wish to share pictures and memories of those years at Scott.... 1952-59... with those of you who could not make it.
Reunion headquarters was the Hope Hotel on the edge of WPAFB. The main attraction in the area is the base and the National Air Force Museum. The following pictures are by collection and in no particular order.... Enjoy.
By the way, there are pictures of all who attended except for Don Condra. He was behind the camera. Hopefully other contributors will have one on him. Please share your pictures!!
