Gateway to the West.  St. Louis, MO proved to be the perfect host for this years reunion.  It was a great location to make new friends and renew old friendships. 

Highlights included visits to the Arch, a magnificent stainless steel tribute to the pioneers and westward expansion, and Old St. Charles Historical District, the site where Lewis & Clark started their adventure to the Northwest.  The day was completed with a great Missouri BBQ dinner at the KC Hall in St. Charles planned by Ed Pugh and his wife, Marge.

 

Our after-dinner speaker at the banquet was CDR Steven Revelas, CO of the Battalion.  He updated everyone as to what the Seabees, especially NMCB 11, were doing today.  His wife, Karen, and daughters, Rosie and Lilly came with him.

Im sure he wished he could get the same level of attention from his Officers and Enlisted personnel that he got from his daughter, Lilly.  Rosie and Lilly left the Reunion with 90+ new grandparents.
