On April 3rd to the 8th, the 85th Ordinance Company that served in Vietnam got together for their annual reunion. This is the 8th year. The reunion was started by Dallas Waterfill. He is the person that set the wheels in motion and started contacting his comrades and has found all of them. Each year, they get together at a military institution selected from all over the country. This year they wanted to come to the southwest so Lieutenant General (RET) Edward T Baca suggested they come to Nellis AFB.

The 85th Ordinance Company is an Army company that provided support for all the troops and did maintenance on all the trucks and equipment during their tour in Vietnam.

The week was filled with new memories with family and friends. Nellis AFB accommodated each one, including their banquet on Sunday night.
