The 2019 reunion of the Smokin' Tigers is drawing near. We are holding a 40th year reunion of the decommissioning of RVAH-1 back in Key West. We are all going to start gathering in Key West on May 1st and 2nd with a picnic on the Truman Annex on Saturday May 4th behind the old EM club on the covered patio.
If you retired from the military and were in the squadron at anytime come and join us, just be sure to bring your military ID. If you were a member of the squadron at anytime and don’t have a military ID and would like to join us please contact me as soon as possible because for you to get base access the Navy will have to do a background check before you will be allowed on the base. We have set a April 15th cut off date for this due to having to get the info to the NAVY in time for them to do the check.
If you can’t make it and want to see who all came and some of the things we did be sure to check out the RVAH-1 Smokin’ Tigers Facebook page.
Key West bound one more time!

The plans for our May 2019 “Last Smoke” Reunion are moving forward.
We had a blast in 2016 but this next reunion is going to be bigger and better. People have started returning RSVPs to me and the total count is climbing almost daily. Due to changes in the base security requirements I am going to start sending out more frequent updates to our contact list.
The townhouses that we have reserved are filling up so if you plan to attend you need to get yours reserved. If you would like to share a townhouse with someone and need roommates or would like to be someone’s roommate send me an e-mail or text me and I will do my best to help you out.
We are planning to have a picnic like we did last time and I believe we are going to shoot for the same place as last time or hold it on Trumbo Point. This is still in the planning stage and we will have to see what can be reserve a head of time for the picnic.
If you need any information or would like to be added to the who is attending list, send me a message.
See you in Key West next May.
