BOARD MEMBER VENT AREA! Page 5  

Once again, we had a whirlwind of time trying to pull off a reunion when yet another hurricane changed our plans. Our 33rd Annual Reunion in Las Vegas will probably be spoiled by a sandstorm! The board would like to thank those members who helped us out during the hectic switch in plans. As always, Duane, Grace, and Vito, were a great help in our logo sales department. Thanks again. I hope everyone enjoyed Captain Allison Black's extremely interesting viewpoint on the beginning of the second Gulf war, as much as I did. Hopefully, she and her husband Ryan will make a few of our future hoe-downs! Hope to see y'all in the The Entertainment Capital of the World, Viva Las Vegas!

Hello to all my "Spectre Family" members. My name is Roger Betterelli , and I would like to introduce myself as one of the new Spectre Board members. The next couple of years should be rewarding and fun as I sit with all the members new and old, trying to bring another voice for our group . I plan on being a "vocal" spokesperson for the Spectre Association with all my contacts with the new students coming through the school house. Hopefully I'll be able to talk to these new Spectre's and persuade them to come out and touch base with everyone who has brought the Gunship Family to where it is today. I look forward to seeing and talking to everyone about our past and future.

Greetings my fellow Spectres. I served my Gunship tours as a Spectre Gunner from 1973-1974 Ubon, Thailand; 1974-1975 Korat, Thailand; 1976-1989 Hurlburt Field, FL; 1991-1995 Hurlburt Field, FL. The campaigns I was involved in include: Mayaguez Incident, Phenom Phenn Evacuation (Operation Frequent Windl), Saigon Evacuation (Operation Eagle Pull), Grenada (Operation Urgent Furry), Panama (Operation Just Cause), Solmalia, and Bosnia. Gunner duties I performed during these tours were: Lead Gun, Instructor, Standardization and Evaluation, and Flight Chief. I am looking forward to representing all of you as a board member.
