Tim Meighen Update As some of you know, I have been ill for the past few months. It started with kidney stones which led to a urinary tract infection which then turned into sepsis with multiple complications. I was in Ohio State University for a month during which time the doctors told Roberta to prepare for the worse. Some of you may not know this but my wife is a very determined person (to put it mildly) and she told the doctors that they would do everything they could to save me and they did. The sepsis shut down my kidney and I needed dialysis for a short time but now that is working ok. I had a few other complications during the hospitalization but I think those have all been resolved. Since being discharged from Ohio State, I was in a rehab facility for a few days before I developed pneumonia and was admitted to a hospital near our house. Since then I have been in an acuity hospital getting physical therapy and building up my strength. I hope by the time you read this I will be at home. Needless to say, this has given me some time to reflect on many aspects of my life. Right now, I cannot continue as your treasurer or reunion planner. I need to focus on getting my health back to where I was before this all started. I have made all the plans for the reunion and have turned over last minute details to Harry. I still hope to be an active member of the organization and by September hope to be back to my old self and see everyone in Gettysburg. I hope once my health is back to normal that I can resume some of my old duties. Tim 2016 IS ELECTION YEAR FOR OUR ASSOCIATION Elections for President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer Positions on the Association Board of Directors will be held at the Annual Business Meeting on Saturday morning of the reunion. We will begin taking nominations upon receipt of this newsletter. You may nominate yourself or someone else, however if you nominate someone else they must agree to serve.

MEMORIAL SEARCH PROJECT We are searching for relatives of those heros we honor each year at our memorial service. We want to let them know their loved ones are not forgotten and invite them to attend our reunions. If you know how to contact any relatives of the fallen please share that information with Janet Anduss at pleiku-lpa@sbcglobal.net The list of the Missing or Killed In Action from Pleiku Air Base can be assessed by clicking MEMORIAL on the Pleiku Website.
