Board of Directors. The reunion was held during the mini reunion of the IMOK Chapter of the 63d Infantry
Division Association. Only 8 or 9 veterans of the 63rd Infantry Division (WWII) attended this reunion.
|Note accompanying a bottle of Kentucky whiskey donated
by MG Michael Schweiger, CG 63d Regional Support
Command. This bottle is to be held and presented to the
last surviving veteran of the 63rd Infantry Division at which
time if he is able to lift up his arm and can hold a glass he
will be able to consume the contents. Currently the bottle
is being held by Ed Fowle of the IMOK Chapter. I am not
sure who is keeping an eye on Ed.
