Ft Walton Beach
15th Reunion

Hosted by
Bob & Nan Kan
27-30 April 1995

This outstanding reunion, hosted by Bob & Nan Kan, took place just 6 months before Hurricane Opal completely destroyed the beautiful hotel on the beach that was our reunion center.  Our Saturday night banquet was on the top 9th floor overlooking the Gulf to the south and the Bay to the north.  What a beautiful view!

Our guest speaker at the banquet was Roy Schoffner.  He had researched, searched for, found, excavated, and was in the process of completely restoring a P-38 Lightning from under 268 feet of ice on the Greenland ice cap!   His slide and video presentation was nothing short of awesome!

Bob had arranged to have a live phone connection to the Squadron in Korea during the banquet to hear the Juvat Boys Choir serenade us.  It was a first–and very entertaining as shown in the following photos!
