LJiljana Ball's quarterly greetings.
Trip to Lombard was long. The weather in Chicago was bad so we could not leave Detroit on time. We all sat there. It was fun. Everyone was in the good mood and when I called the gentleman to tell that I was running late, he said "just call me". Two hours after many calls, he was able to pick me up. The hotel was not too far, in a nice location. Beautiful old neighborhood, nice homes and very fitting landscape. The Hotel was huge with a good restaurant and every one was very helpful. In the lobby they served refreshments, so cute and so tasty sandwiches were in the little baskets and salad basin a small but very clever !! Friday RAKKASAN dinner was excellent.
What made it super nice Col John Cogbill, SGM Alvaro Pertus were there with the Color Guard from Fort Campbell. It is always nice to see young men in uniform. LTG (Ret) Francis Wiercinski was there. Sir, please give my warmest ALOHA to Jeannine, SGM Savusa and Maretta. I hope to see you next year.
