The Misawans are on the move. We launched our first national reunion in Biloxi, MS in 2003, then crossed the Mississippi and went beyond the Rockies the following year, all the way to Las Vegas, NV.

It was during the Las Vegas Reunion that Chief Wayne Babb addressed the attendees with a proposal to convene the following year in his home town of Chattanooga, TN for our 3rd reunion, and even offered to ramrod the entire affair! It was an offer we just couldn't refuse. Wayne enlisted wife Fran to help make it happen, and the two of them together delivered results beyond anyone's expectations.

Chatanooga is a town large enough to accommodate most anyone's wants and needs, but not so large as to be cold or unfriendly. Southern hospitality is indeed alive and well here. The town is loaded with charm, has a rich history, and offers a plethora of interesting places to visit. Our home base was the well-known and architecturally exquisite Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel where our group was graciously received and treated royally.

Once again, reunion attendance increased over the previous year - this time, by about 40%. And this year, even more veterans elected to bring their partners and families to join in the activities. Our reunions have truly become family affairs.

One of the highlights of this year's reunion was staging our banquet aboard the Southern Belle Riverboat as it cruised the Tennessee River - a fascinating and memorable experience that was enjoyed and will long be remembered by all who attended. The food was excellent and the scenery was breathtaking.
