MEMOS FROM THE SPECTRE ASSOCIATION BOARD Page 3  

Outgoing President's Message
Wow, what an exciting tenure as President. I would like to thank the membership for their support through all the turmoil the terrorists, weather, and thieves generated. I would very much like to thank the membership and board members for their tolerance of the turmoil I generated. As I look back over the last view years my vision of problems blurs, but my vision of success is crystal clear. We managed to pull off a very successful reunion one month after 9-11. We supported our war fighting brothers and sisters with care packages, books, videos, and picnics. We weathered an endless number of hurricanes and managed to have reunions every year. We never found the cameras (oops, that's a crystal clear problem. We have made the first step in joining with the rest of the side-firing gunship brotherhood. We have mourned the loss of brothers-in-arms, while celebrating the successes of our new generations of heroes. We were even blessed with an unbelievable audience the "Angel of Death." I've had fun, I hope you have. I leave my post in very capable hands and wish you all the very best. Pilot's out of the sight......safe the gun.

It's a pleasure to be your new President - for the second time. We have a big agenda in front of us, and I'll be calling on several of you for assistance. This first major activity is planning for next year's reunion. We are looking for volunteers for the board, and challenge each and every one of you to bring in one new member this year. Let's get started, and if you ain't Spectre, you ain't ---!

The three worst things to hear in the cockpit:
The flight engineer says, "Oh crap!"
The copilot says, "I have an idea!"
The pilot says, "Hey, hold my beer and watch this!"
