Mission # 263
80th Anniversary Commemoration
August 30 - September 1, 2024
Dear "Mission 263" family members, some of you already asked us for details of the next year's commemoration. We are seeking to know the numbers of those planning to come.
We are planning to divide the event into 3 days (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) so far. Maybe we will add Thursday as well and this day would be dedicated to the museums visits only, because during the official part of the commemorations there's never enough time for the museums. We’ll see what the people want. For now, Friday, Saturday and Sunday are in the schedule.
We would like to ask you for the list of those who are thinking of attending the commemoration. Please let us know the number of visitors from each family? Preliminarily for now and then we would close the list at the end of this year. The initial plan is for all to arrive in Vienna as it is the largest airport at 80 miles away from the commemoration sites.
Preliminary list of visitors as of September 20, 2023 Scott Bicksler - 1 person Jürgen Reschke - 1 person James Knotts + Marissa Heath Knotts - 2 people Kellylynn Charles - 8 people Larry Joyner - 2 people Gail Halverson - 2 people Todd Weiler and Jan Weiler - 2 people Ann and Russel Rhoades - 2 people Greg and wife Mona Weiler - 2 people Col. Micheal Stehle wife Lisa - 2 people Kerry Baker - 1 person — with Riley Buzzard and 41 others.
If your name is not on the list, please contact me with your information. Thanks!
