|NOLA - New Orleans, Louisiana - The Big Easy
This “Recall to Duty”
tasking authority is in accordance with military protocol and public
affairs directives as directed by US Asian SOF SOP and SSgt Patrick
Hall (USAF CCT, Ret). With
all the organized and scripted reunions planned over the years, an idea
was born to just have fun and get back together. It has been over
20 years for some of us to regroup and meet up for an “Asian
Special Ops” mini-reunion. Thanks to members of the Clark
AB CCT who developed this concept and made the great effort in making
contact with our SOF family.

“Operation Rally Point”
The best place for this to happen
would have been somewhere in Asia, but current intel advised that most
members are stateside. Since we couldn’t plan a massive
get-together in Angeles City, I-Tae Won, Bangkok or Cambodia, then the
next best thing was to have a location centralized within the CONUS
that provided for the special needs of our global family.
The planned location will be in New Orleans, LA (initial meet at the Sheraton Hotel, 1600 hours).
Mission Statement: To reorganize
Asian Theater Special Ops Forces (USA &USAF) and rendezvous in New
Orleans, LA between July 15-17, 2011.
Initial Rally Point: Friday,
July 15, 2011, at the New Orleans Sheraton Hotel, 1600 hours, main
barroom. Will remain on site until July 17, 2011 (Fri-Sun).
