    They screwed up and gave me the only working key.

    Bar now stocked with Irish, Scottish, Italian, Canadian, and Telicoian spirits.

    First shadowbox containing random patches of an APO and LRRA member is now on display.

    I reserved four display cases for the Army (one each for MACV/SOG, 1st Air Cav, The Paratrooper Association/Long Range Reconnaissance Association, and DNL's), four for the Marines, one nice one for the Air Force, and one shitty, broken down one for the Navy with an umbrella in it.

    That should get things rolling right along.

    Gave a tour of the building to a couple of local ladies and introduced them to the Italian Paratrooper tradition of FLAMING SAMBUCA at the saloon across the street.

    One lady chicken lipped it and caught the whole front of her shirt on fire.

    With lightning fast reflexes I was able to put the fire out using the knife hand technique.

    If any of you Vietnam or Korean War era paratroopers need a groupie, PM me.

    You just can't make this shit up.

    I have plenty of room for any APO members who would like to come to Junction for the open house. Bring sheets and pillows or sleeping bags.

    Fishing poles provided, bathing suits optional.

    Zimmy, LoneStar, and Ranger Bell have the gate and door combos if I'm not there to open up in time on Friday.

    Show up any time but GTFO by Sunday at lunchtime so i can reset.

    Y’all have a blast. I have to work.

    Anyone who needs those combos down there give me a holler if you go.

    Meeting was a success, fourteen members showed up.

    Everyone was amazed by the cleanup and bathroom remodel done by three old paratroopers.

    APO Shot Bar and the Custodian's Corner display were a big hit.

    There are plans for quarterly meetings and best of all I was able to hide in the back of the room and managed to avoid promotion to anything higher than my self-appointed janitorial position.

    Excellent! The first of many such gatherings, I hope. When they are done for the good fellowship of the warriors, these things have a way of taking on a life of their own.
