45th Reunion Recap

Congrats to all those able to attend our recent Class Reunion. All total we had 81 classmates and 62 guests in attendance including some first timers but special acknowledgment goes to Bill Baker who has not been to any reunions and has not been back to New London/CGA since he left in 1976!!  Outstanding!!

We had a first with our Class advisor, VADM Jim Hull and his wife Judy in attendance, with Jim Hull joining the March-On with the class!!!  Moreover we had two of our class widows join us for the weekend. Kim Jackson (Marty) and Jane Gordon (big Scott) are the first widows to join us at a reunion. We hope all the class family (widows and non-Grads) will join us for the 50th.

For those unable to hear our March-On spiel and those not attending, here is what was announced as we Marched On in the rain, a little closer to the 50 yard line!!

"Following their class motto of "Heritage and Pride", many classmates amazingly completed successful Coast Guard careers! Not unexpectedly all classmates have had successful careers outside the Coast Guard. Watch as these medicare card-carrying alumni walk proudly onto the 45 yard line joined by their Class Advisor VADM Jim Hull, Class of 1969. Now standing tall for their 45th Reunion, is the Great Class of 1978!"

Please continue to reach out to those you know who are not on signed up to this website and keep your profile current as we plan for our 50th in five short years!! Joining the Alumni Association will keep you up to speed on out happenings especially in the class notes of the bi-monthly Bulletin.  

I hope to receive some news and photos as we enter the holdiay season.

Yours in service,
