New reunion information about the 75th Anniversary of Stars and Stripes publishing in Europe.
Stripes.com is in the second year of publishing the Vietnam@50 reflections http://www.stripes.com/news/special-reports/vietnam-at-50
. The content is updated each year featuring the significant events that occurred during the year of that conflict.
One of the sections is “my experience.” This is designed to allow veterans the opportunity to express their experience, how it change their lives and other reflections. Terry Leonard the Editor and Max Lederer the Publisher believe that the experiences of former Stripes’ staff from the Vietnam era would enrich this section http://www.stripes.com/news/special-reports/vietnam-at-50/my-experience
Also the six word project in the voices of Vietnam section is another location former Stripes Vietnam era staff can express their impressions http://www.stripes.com/news/special-reports/vietnam-at-50/voices-of-vietnam

The Stars & Stripes Association is comprised of former and present staffers who served on Stars & Stripes anywhere in the world as well as those who have lent support to the organization. Its goal is to continue the camaraderie that was enjoyed by those who served on the famed newspapers.
Formed in 1989 by one-time Pacific S&S circulation manager Maury Martin and long-time Pacific librarian/liaison Toshi Cooper (nee Tokunaga), the association sponsors an annual reunion, keeps members informed of events of interest through this Web site and occasional newsletters, and otherwise helps to preserve fond memories and friendships. The association is also a major supporter of the Stars & Stripes Museum/Library Association in Bloomfield, MO.
Currently, nearly 250 Stripers, mainly alumni, make up the association’s membership.
Association dues are $20 annually. To join, simply fill out the membership application (Please click on Membership).
Past reunions have been held in Las Vegas, Washington, D.C., Chicago, San Diego, San Antonio, Atlanta, Colorado Springs, San Francisco, Orlando, Bloomfield, Honolulu, Nashville, Portland and Philadelphia.
If you are a current staffer of the Stars & Stripes newspapers, an alumni, or someone who wishes to support the organization, you are not only welcome, you are strongly urged to join. It is a wonderful way to meet new colleagues or rekindle old friendships and keep alive the great memories we all cherish from our service.
