This was another great Tulln Air Base, Austria reunion!  It seems that most of the same Tullnites are coming each year! We would like to see more of you come and enjoy these reunions, including the many Tullnites who have never attended even one reunion.   We do have guests who attend now and then, and there are some attendees who bring their children to almost every reunion as a family outing. We listen to all the old "war stories" that are told with interest. The children always seem to hear new things about their father's or mother's experiences at Tulln Air Base.

 

It was good to see the many friends we have known through these reunions.  We look forward to seeing each other again.  It is like old home week! Of course, many of you stay in contact with each other throughout the years.  For those of us who have attended many of these reunions, we still hear new “war stories” and adventures from those Tulln days. 

 

As usual, there was much to see and do in Memphis and the local area. There was the the barbecue dinner during the steamboat ride on the Mississippi River. Several people went on scheduled sightseeing tours around the area, including a trip to one of the local malls. The most exciting event was traveling to many of the casinos located about one hour away in Mississippi. Many went more than once, but I never heard of anyone leaving the casinos with more money than they went in with.

 

The accommodations were very nice. The Marriott restaurant food was expensive, but it was good and plentiful, including our continental breakfasts and our banquet. For those who wanted to eat out, there were places to dine within walking or short driving distances from the hotel. The Bigler family took Elfie and me out to a delicious Barbecue dinner at a place called "Corky's"---best barbecue we have eaten in years!

 

We had 77 attendees, including children (adults), at this reunion.  Karl and Shirley Bigler brought their son, Jeff;  Lois Heller brought her children, Mark and Vickie;  Warren and Anna Hollertz brought their daughter; Ed Karolak brought his son Garry; and Henry Roell brought his daughters, Debby and Nancy. The Tulln Air Base Reunion attendees were: Attendance List.   

 

Since our 2009 reunion, another 61 enlisted Tulln personnel, 8 officers, or thier spouses, have passed away. Their names are shown on the Deceased List.

 

Edith Combs entertained us during the banquet with a melody of songs on her harmonica.  The audience sang along with her on many of the songs.  Dick Whitford was in charge of organizing our Mississippi steamboat, barbecue dinner ride. All had a good time at the barbecue!
