***The following was updated by Secretary Norm on 19 October 2015***

Bruce MacDougall, the President of the Vietnam Era Seabees sends Sec
Norm the following email.  It has been edited for length.  Quoted below.

Norm and all "62 er's",
Do to many difficulties in working out all
the arrangements for the
2016 ECASR;
unfortunately, VNES will not be holding
the 2016 ECASR.
We encountered far too many obstacles in
attempting to get this 
organized.  It appears
the Lancaster area does not cooperate with
those planning reunions like Hampton, VA does! Hampton was overly generous and Lancaster is
just the opposite!

We are in the process of putting a postcard
together to inform all
of our members.  
This will hopefully be sent out very shortly?
Sorry to inform you of this.
Can Do!
End of email from Bruce MacDougle, Pres.  VNES
