***** NEWS FLASH *****

Members: the recent unprecedented medical emergency of COVID-19, and the social distancing that must be practiced, has led us to make a decision of cancelling the San Diego “Gathering of the Troops” scheduled for this September. This was to be a great event at a great venue, but we must ensure that our members are safe. This was a social event that I find difficult to hold when we have the COVID-19 threat. Although there may be some steps forward in finding treatments, and possibly a vaccine by this fall, we cannot risk holding a social event that places our age group in harms way.

You may fully cancel your hotel reservations at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort with no penalty. Also, Frank Jones, our Treasurer, will be sending you a refund of any Registration Fees received by the MRFA for attending the reunion.

Sincerely,

MRFA President Harry Hahn
