My message last month yielded one
volunteer who will restart the 82nd Med Bn
column. At the same time Bob Payne has
resigned as unit rep for the 92nd Recon Bn.
While many columns are still written by
veterans and legacy, the future of the Hellcat
News is becoming gloomy. I know you are out there, I know
you are busy, at the same time you owe it to your loved ones
and those who died for our country to carry the torch, whether
they have passed or are still with you. Your help is needed,

of the 2nd Army Maneuvers Field Headquarters moving to
