Until recently, there was an official 46th/72nd Recon Association.
Regretably, in late 2006, the Association was dissolved for various reasons.

Every two years, the Association sponsored reunions for Association members and their guests.

Past reunions have been held in San Antonio, Orlando, Reno, Fort Worth, Williamsburg, San Diego, Colorado Springs, Fort Walton Beach FL. and most recently (2006) in Sacramento, California.

There is web site currently under construction, strictly for the 46th/72nd Recon.
(www.46th72nd.org) Please visit it - as it will contain lots of great history on this fantastic military unit.

If anyone has reunion photos they'd like to have displayed on this web site, please e-mail them and we'll post them here!

THANKS SUE!!! Hats off to Sue Goetz. We don't know how you did it. And we can never thank you enough! You put this wonderful event together, and oversaw it while going through some very tough times. Your hard work enabled one and all to have a great time. You are an inspiration to everyone. Best wishes to you and your family!
And many thanks to Sue's sister: Mary Hall, from Memphis. She came down a couple of weeks early and helped Sue with reunion arrangements. She baked, made decorations, helped carry stuff from home to boat, hotel, etc.
Thanks you guys!!
