Banquet Dinner & Dance

Our banquet dinner & dance was held Thursday evening.  There were 61 Caspers and guests in attendance at our final event for 2009.  Colors were posted by a local San Diego Boy Scout Troop and we had a surprise from U.S. Congressman Duncan Hunter as our guest speaker.  Duncan was a former 173d Airborne Brigade Ranger serving in Vietnam from 1969 - 1970.  Accompanying him was Larry Gorfine, Past President of the San Diego Chapter of the 173d Airborne Brigade Association, who also served in the Herd in 1969.
