Welcome All Alaska Nike Vet's

As you all know the last reunion we had was in 2018, those who had did the planning wanted to "step back" and have some new blood get involved. Well nothing has happened till recently there has been renewed interest in having a reunion some time in 2022.  We polled our list of Nike Vets and have gotten some positive response. Here are the results.  First the number of responses those that completed the survey were 138 out of 303 that actually viewed the survey.

Hospitability Room:

Guys the hotel has provided us with a “Hospitability Room” for the 3 night’s we are there. The cost of the room is $50.00 per night that cost will be added to your banquet charges. And as in the past we will be “passing the hat” to cover cost of beverage and snacks for that room.

More information on other possible reunions.

 For this year the Nike Historical Society  may be holding a reunion at Nike Site SF88 this September, you may want to check this out.

Also a idea was submitted to us on a joint reunion of all involved in "Air Defense" this would include US Army and Marine Hawk units and others. A great amount of planning would have to be done by the various groups involved. We would have to make some inquiries into this to test the water and get back to our vet's with the information.

You may wish to check the “Reunion Page” at www.a-2-562.org  as further info will be posted there when it’s updated.
