REUNION 2015 - LEXINGTON, KY September 9 - 13 2015 Geese "Fly Over" at Memorial Service Photos from the 2015 Reunion in Lexington, KY. We had approximately 80 in attendance for the tours, luncheons, and banquet. The 2015 Pleiku Air Base Reunion was held in Lexington, KY at the Hilton Suites. Thanks for the efforts of J.D. Smith and his wife Vickie making it all possible. They were ably assisted by Tim Meighen and Roberta Raymond, Matt and Ingrid Cresta, Arlene Arledge and the ladies auxilliary keeping the hospitality suite stocked and clean, and all the other members present for lending a hand when needed. On Thursday September 10th a bus tour was made of Keeneland Race Course, a drive through Donamire Farm (where scenes from a couple of movies were filmed) and a visit to Magdalena Farm where we got to meet the horses face to face.. Following the tour lunch was served at the hotel. On Friday September 11th the group held the Memorial service at the Kentucky Vietnam Veteran's Memorial at Frankfort. We had a nice day for it with blue sky which included a "fly over" of a flock of geese and outstanding support with the bugler, honor guard and firing squad. After the service we made our way to Buffalo Trace Distillery for a boxed lunch and a tour of the distillery. Friday evening we had a pizza party with Kentucky Derby pie and Vickie Smith made some of her bourbon balls which were a very big hit. The annual business meeting was held Saturday morning with the banquet on Saturday evening closing out the reunion.
