I have set up a reunion FACEBOOK page and will post registration form
and info on there also:  
        To join our group, please go to the SIGN UP page and fill out the formThe webmaster will then gladly admit you to the group and add your name and only your e-mail contact info to the MEMBERS CONTACT INFO page.  Your info will only be used to create a MASTER LIST which is kept by Sue Rice.
To all us "old" members, please use the sign up page to update any changes in your address or contact info.  We will then update the website and the MASTER LIST.  Hopefully, you will find a few old friends on the list.  Someone on the list may already be looking for you. 
We will be glad to include your pictures, stories, links etc. to the site. Please email these items to the webmaster.   
 We have added a memorial page to honor those crew members who perished in the Provider, or remain missing.  We have also added a page of all the known C-123 crashes in SEA. If you can add any info about them, please do.  Corrections are especially welcome.  Most of our sources only listed those killed in the crash, we would like to list the survivors as well, and hear from them.  I'm sure these people have some amazing stories.  We also want to create another page honoring non-flying  fatalities.  We ask your help in providing, names, dates, places and circumstances.
 Additionally, please pass this site address along to anyone you know who is eligible to join or interested in our/your history. 
Thanks for visiting our site.....Webmaster, Ray L. Merritt
