The Second Bombardment Association 2009
mark your calendar now and invite your
children, grandchildren, friends, and relatives to the 2009
Reunion of the 2nd Bombardment Group Association. The
reunion will be held in San Antonio, Texas which is affectionately
referred to by Texans as the "Rivercity" because of the beautiful
Riverwalk. San Antonio is also proudly know as "Military City"
because it is home to Randolph Air Force Base, Lackland Air Force Base,
Kelly Field, Fort Sam Houston, Brook Army Medical Center, and Camp
Bullis. San Antonio, however, is probably best known around the
world as the site of the Alamo which has come to symbolize hope, heroism, and
sacrifice in the face of impossible odds for the cause of liberty.
