It is with heavy heart that I have to announce the cancellation of this year’s 5th Special Forces Group Reunion activities. The Legion command team with input from our chapter looked into every option possible but with the present uncertainties, the impact of local garrison restrictions to gathering in numbers, the recent extension to social distancing mandates in Tennessee and the unknowns that may arise between now and the date of the Reunion felt this was the only solution.
The Legion is looking into identifying a day in the upcoming weeks where they will honor and celebrate the unit’s organization and accomplishments. We will provide support to this activity once it is finalized. Both The Legion and our Chapter will be turning our focus on making the next year’s 60th reunion one for the record books.
The Chapter and the SFBMC will still conduct the first annual ‘Reunion Ride’. We will host a morning breakfast at the Safehouse on Saturday (19 SEP) followed by a ride with the SFBMC. Since this year’s Memorial activities were cancelled, this iteration of the Reunion Ride will also include our Annual Dog Tag ceremony as well as our chapter stone placement.
We know the events and uncertainties this year have altered and affected everyone in a multitude of ways. Our Chapter remains strong and focused to continue its support to The Legion, its Soldiers and their families and our members.
