The Funkes were home on Dec. 25 for the first time in
years. The family is too scattered to gather together but son
#1, legacy member, David and his wife Karen honored us

If any of you make New Year’s Resolutions, and work to
keep them, a good one would be for you to get better acquainted
with your reps. It is not really hard since we all have really
modern conveniences like the postal service, email and Ma
Couple of things to clean up this New Year are requests
for information. One is from James Lindsey, nephew of John
Robinson [A], If you know anything about John, contact
James at email@example.com.
Next is the request from Steve Harding, senior editor of the
Military History Magazine, wanting info about the 3-6 soldiers

came to let us know they are moving from their present home
(been there for years) to the San Diego area. That is rather
surprising since they are so active in their present location,
but they will probably find ways to keep moving in their new
“digs.” They won’t move until their house sells, but now they
own two houses. Some people just get richer and richer. In
