New Members for August, 2017

Lamdgraff, Earl G. – Charlie Co – 1966-1967  (8/15/17)                                                  

                                                                                                             BANDIDO'S                                                                                           

  The National Museum of the United States Army is currently under construction on the grounds of Fort Belvoir, Virginia in the location of our  National Capital.
  Memorial Black Granite bricks will be inscribed and inlaid along a Path of Remembrance at this museum. Both myself, ( Lawrence Tirreno ) and Bill Hartshorn, two of the original
  Bandido's are dedicating one of the larger stones in memory of our beloved Commander and originator of Bandido Charlie, Lt. Larry A Garner.
 Any Bandido or friend who would like to participate with a donation may do so. As it is not our intention to raise money for this memorial but to allow as many Bandido's to participate
 as possible, we will not accept any donationover $15. We have been told by the museum committee these bricks will not be walked on but placed next to a walkway. A lasting tribute to his memory.
We would like any suggestions as to the inscription  examples on www.armyhistory.org/bricks .
 A full accounting of all donations will be kept. Any overage will be given to the Bandido Charlie Association and the 5th Battalion Association. Any underage will be paid for by Bill and Myself.
 Please send any donation to:   Lawrence  Tirreno
                                                    P.O. Box 2871
                                                 Westport, CT 06880
  Please mark "Donation" on check or money order. If you leave name and phone number we will inform you when the memorial is in place.
