2019 Enroute Reunion

435th OMS ENROUTE MAINTENANCE VETERANS REUNION
Gatlinburg, Tennessee 
When:  9-13 October, 2019

** ENROUTERS, FRIENDS & GUESTS **

Our 2019 Enroute Reunion will be one of the most remembered reunions we have ever held.
Mr. & Mrs. Floyd Johnson - (Reunion Hosts) have worked countless hours on this reunion.
One of the BIGGEST highlights of our reunion, will be the Private Tour of Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
This tour will be a chance of a lifetime for our members to go "Behind the Fence" and see the ever famous-
Manhattan Project and associated areas.

Folks, please do yourself a favor and  "Google / YouTube" Oak Ridge TN and The Manhattan Project prior your arrival for the tour, because it will give you a better understanding and remembrence in what you will see. If you were to go to Oak Ridge on your own, it literally takes 1 year to get on this tour.
We are being blessed and are being given a Private Tour, by Ray Smith. (You will become very familiar with him and his important role during this important time in our American history).
