Noncommissioned Officer Candidate Reunion 2017




To All Members of our Group:




In less than 3 months we will be gathering at Fort Benning for our reunion commemorating 50 years since the first class began in 1967. There has been a lot of water under the bridge in that time and we look forward to gathering and catching up with old friends and make new ones.

Details are coming together as they constantly evolve as we work with new people at Ft. Benning and new or changed regulations happen it seems on a daily basis. However, this shall pass and we will have a great time. We extended the time so we are not on the go constantly and have time to relax and visit.

Our Tuesday evening banquet speaker is retired LTG Patrick Hughes who commanded NCOC graduates in Vietnam and went onto have an outstanding military career. We will again have an alcohol auction Saturday evening at the hotel and another auction at the banquet. This funds help defray the reunion costs.
