To all our 317th Veterans

The Corona Virus has left us all with a lot of uncertainty about plans for this year.  As for this year’s reunion plans, we were looking at the possibility of holding an informal reunion near Geneseo, New York in conjunction with the National Warplane Museum’s annual airshow July 10-12. They have recently acquired one of our aircraft, C-130A 57-0460.
This virus and the precautions set in place to contain it which includes banning large gatherings could very well cause this event to be canceled if the risk of it spreading is not over by July.   President Trump said it may take until July or August before it is contained. There is uncertainty as to when this will be all over but be assured, we will get through this and it will be over. For now, we need to follow the instructions of the U.S. Surgeon General and the Center for Disease Control.  As for this year’s reunion we will have to have to wait and see just when this crisis will end. I will keep you informed whether we will go ahead with the reunion.
