REUNION INVITATION LETTER

John R. Dailey (aka) Zorro Squadron / Midway Reunion

VMC, VMCJ, VMAQ Marines and Friends, you are cordially invited to attend the first Zorro Squadron and Midway Reunion to be held in San Diego, California, Sunday, May 10 - Wednesday, May 13, 2020. The Zorro Squadron and Midway Reunion directly precedes the MCAA Convention that will be held just 30 minutes North in La Jolla, California May 13 - May 17, 2020. These two events are not affiliated, however we bring it to your attention so if you want to attend both events, you can plan accordingly.

These Reunions and the MCAA Convention are must attend events. Why is that? None of us are getting any younger! The bonds and friendships we formed as squadron mates in combat and in peace time are perhaps the most important of these that we have formed in our life times. They have to be nurtured, developed and maintained. The Zorro Squadron serves that purpose for squadron members, aircrew, maintainers and civilians whose service spans the entire 50+ years of USMC Recce/EW support to the Marine Air-Ground Task Force. 1949 - 2019. WE ARE ONE. WE ARE NOT GOING AWAY!

Besides that, there is nothing like sharing a damned good Happy Hour, sea stories and food with great friends who survived Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, sleeping in hooches in Da Nang, getting chased by Migs and shot at by telephone poles in the skies of North Vietnam, maintaining fragile aircraft in the worst possible conditions, and recovering them on dark and stormy nights aboard Midway and many other unfriendly flight decks and air bases. So, you need to be there! We need YOU to be there!
