Fellow Psywarriors,
POVA will come together in Biennial Reunion in 11 more months.  How time flies!

The Reunion in Cleveland, OH, will be held from 19-22 July 2018.  In general, our agenda will include our first-day arrival and welcome session on the first day; our business meeting and local tours and entertainment on the second day; a day of fun with friends and family on the third day, culminating in our Biennial Banquet and Remembrance Ceremony; and final farewells and departure on the last day.  There will be plenty of time for reconnection with friends, social time, and entertainment in the rich visiting “grounds” of Cleveland.

To do this right, though, we need a few volunteers to help with the planning.  Please commit some of your time to help make this reunion a truly excellent experience for all in attendance.

POVA has now rostered 100 Life Members, encompassing Psywarriors of all our “engagements” since the Korean War.  POVA’s 100th Life Member, Howard Patrick, is a very special member.  The two of us served together performing PSYOP missions for the 1st Cavalry Division’s 2d Brigade in ’68-69. Launching from such scenic venues as Quan Loi, Lai Khe, and Dau Tieng…..ahh, the memories!.  From such committed members come the future leadership and success of POVA.

For the past couple of months, POVA has worked with Gina Hinkley, owner of “Flick of the Wrist,” a small company that does outstanding work producing custom shirts, caps, jackets, etc..  Gina is very hard-working and extremely committed to POVA and our members, and we are proud to count her as an Associate Member of POVA.  She has made a difference with her work, and her continued efforts to help us raise funds for our charitable activities.
