Message from Executive Director, Louis Brown:
On 17 April, I invited BG Mark A. Merlino of the Massachusetts National Guard to be our guest of honor and speaker at the banquet.
BG Merlino is an Engineer officer and is currently the Assistant Adjutant General, MAARNG as well as the Deputy Chief of Engineers for National Guard Affairs.
He has volunteered to provide the color guard for the pre-banquet ceremonies. The invitation included his aide and his senior enlisted staff member as well.
Wives included, of course.
Kudos to Bob Powers for making the initial contact.
To assist with planning, please let me know if you will be attending this year’s reunion and when you expect to arrive in Danvers, MA.
I will be in the area by 9/29 and plan to be at the hotel from the evening of 10/2 on.
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
