The Florida branch held its annual reunion in sunshiny Titusville, Florida at the Best Western Space Shuttle Inn from October 16-18.
At the general business meeting, the members voted to hold the Florida Branch reunions in 2015 and 2016 in Titusville on the weekend after Columbus Day. All 2nd Infantry Division veterans are invited to attend. The members also voted to form a committee to try and bring the association’s 2018 national reunion to the great state of Florida.
The following officers were elected or re-elected: President Roy Wilt, Vice President Mike Davino, Secretary/Treasurer Bob McAdow, Sergeant-at-Arms Mickey Tutolo, Chaplain Stanley Adler, and Membership Officer Carmelo Rodriguez.
A highlight of the reunion was our guest speaker, George Rosenfield, a veteran of both World War II and the Korean War. George is a retired scientist and Army Reserve major. He enthralled the audience with his account of the 38th Regimental Combat Team in between the wars and his personal experiences on the battlefield.
