Mr. Snuffie Goes to Washington
Headquarters Marine Corps
The 1st Marine Division
ISO Snuffies, along with spouses, stragglers, admirers, camp followers
and wanna-bes will invade the nation's capital in November, highly-placed
intelligence sources have confirmed.
Nation's Capital on High
Alert; Invasion of Snuffies Rumored
"If we had a little
more intelligence 35 years ago, we wouldn't have been Snuffies and there
would be no reason to have a reunion," according to one grizzled ISO veteran
who asked to remain anonymous so Dale Dye would leave him alone.
"If we'd have had better intelligence, we wouldn't have let any of them
in," a source at Headquarters Marine Corps said.
Anyway, it's on.
The first Snuffie East Coast reunion. Early returns from those on
email indicate this could be a big turnout. Now that we've taken
away any excuses for the Easterners, let's hope so.
A number of Snuffies
have come in out of the field or out of the witness protection program
since our 2000 reunion. You will find many more names and contact
info on the enclosed list, if I remember to enclose it. There are
a number of people I don't know and have never met, so I assume it includes
some impostors. Then again, a lot of people have always said that
about me; I was lucky not to get run up on charges of impersonating a Marine.
The dates are Nov 8-11
(Friday-Monday), so come for some or all of it. It coincides with
the 20th anniversary of The Wall, which is part of the reason we decided
to go there instead of Reno or some other exotic locale.

home to Hooch 13 on November 8-11, 2002.
