Photo Gallery #18: 2021 Reunion in DAYTON, OHIO - 320th MMs

Our 2021 reunion in Dayton, Ohio was a challenge because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The prime attraction for us in Dayton was the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. Dayton had been planned for the 2020 reunion, but that event was cancelled because everything was shut down in the spring due to the pandemic. A year later, the decision was made to have the reunion in October of 2021. Attendance was impacted greatly because of the Covid situation, with a total of 7 people attending.

Attendees at the Dayton reunion were:

  • Paul and Jan Baker
  • Steve and Pauline Bisel
  • Jon Crawford with his sister-in-law and her husband as guests
