Thanks for the notes

Thanks for the notes, the Diehards V was my only chance to attend [one hour and twenty minutes drive from my home]. But based on this site [ http://www.zenithair.com/misc/distance.html ] I was located [approx] 8052 miles (12958 km) (6997 nautical miles) from Las Vegas, on station somewhere in the Persian Gulf on my second IRAQI FREEDOM deployment.

Diehards Events History

Post by Mel Lindauer »

Hi simba:

WOW! What a fantastic job you've done in compiling this history into one place. Reading some of those posts from the earlier days brings back such fond memories.

As the events get larger and larger, it gets more and more difficult to spend time talking to everyone one-on-one, which is what many of us enjoyed so much in the earlier days. However, the upside is that many more Diehards get to experience this great event, where they get to spend time with Jack Bogle, a true legend in his own time and some of the other folks they've only read about.

We promise that, no matter how hard it is, we'll continue to strive to make each event very special for those who are able to attend.

Thanks again for putting this together.

Best regards,

Mel

If you would like for Simba's post to be placed in the library, have Simba copy his post and place it in the Library suggestion box. We can then devise a place for it in the library.

Hi Simba,

Thank you for this incredible post. It is obvious you put much time, effort, and thought into it. Your post brought back many wonderful memories for me from the reunions I have been fortunate enough to attend. It will also let people who haven't attended, get an idea of what these reunions are all about.

As Barry suggests, would it be possible for you to copy your post and place it in the Library suggestion box, so Barry can then place it in the library?
Thank you so much for your post. I especially like viewing the photo albums again.

Best wishes,

Kathleen

Outstanding post about Diehard Reunion History

Post by Taylor Larimore »

Hi Simba:
I want you to know how much I appreciate your beautiful post with links to Conversations describing the history of our Diehard Reunions. It brings back memories of meeting some of the finest people in the world.

The amount of time it must have taken is a tribute to your talent and dedication to Diehard values. I hope I have the privilege of meeting you at one of our Reunions.

Best wishes.
Taylor

Mel/Barry/Kathleen/Taylor,

Thank you all for the kind words.

I know a lot of effort went into organizing the events and it deserves to be experienced by many more so it was a humble effort on my part to post that topic.

The kind words you all have showered on me reflects the humility and the diehard spirit that lies in each of us.

Taylor - It would be my privilege to meet Jack, you and others from this forum.

Kathleen - The original link for pictures to DH - V requires registration so I took the liberty to upload it here

Edit: Updated the URL

Thank you Simba,

for providing a link to a site where my DH V photos can be viewed without registration. (Thanks also to Jonathan who posted the photos for me initially, as I couldn't get my photo album to be accessible to anyone but me) - but,

"I get by with a little help from my friends." 8)

Best wishes, and thanks again Simba,
Kathleen
