Thanks to the Reunion Committee
What a great reunion! Thanks to the members of the reunion committee:
Coty Cuttino, Wally West, Bubba Kennedy, Joe Williams, David Lattimer,
Scott Tucker, Kevin Campbell, Bob Reed, Tom Doyle, Mike Schwartz, and
Stan Townsend. (See reunion comments
from our classmates below.)
Request for pictures
Please send me digital copies (jpeg format) of your favorite pictures
from the reunion, and I will post them on our web site. Also, please
try to provide a brief caption to be used for each picture. If you
don't have digital copies, you can take negatives to a camera store
and have them converted to digital format.
Request for money
Did you enjoy the Courvoisie Barracks? The Class of 1970 set the standard
for Homecoming “tents.” The Courvoisie Barracks was a project
taken on by the reunion committee, and those costs were not included in
the cost of the weekend package. Therefore, the costs associated with the
barracks ($3,000) are extra, and unless additional funds are collected,
the remainder will be made up by the committee. Many of our classmates
have already contributed as a result of Coty's appeal at the ball.
If you would like to contribute, your fair share is approximately $25.00.
Of course not everyone will be able to contribute, so you are certainly
encouraged to send more. Send your check to the following address:
Class of 1970 Reunion
171 Moultrie Street

Reunion comments from our classmates
Below are a few of the comments (slightly edited) that I received related
to the reunion.
- Ditto John Moore’s kudos to the reunion committee. A splendid job.
- Please pass along to the 70 reunion committee what a great job they
did! Nothing short of outstanding. It was great to see all the ole
classmates and trade life stories. They were a handsome group, don’t
you think? I think it shows by the participation in the reunion just how
much The Citadel means to each one of us that attended.
- I and my nine attending pals from H Company (you all remember that
good-looking crowd of 5'7" guys) fully agree. We had a ball, the best
reunion thus far. We are shooting for 75% of the H Co seniors to attend
2005. Again, a classy job, Committee!
- John, please pass on a “well done” and thanks to all who
assisted with our 30th Reunion. A very special gathering of
friends doesn’t get any better.
- Can we do it again before 2005? Thanks again.

- Let me just add my two cents. The reunion was great! Why can’t we
have one every year? A partial answer may be that, “I don’t think
my body could take it.”
- I used to look at those “old guys” and thought I did not want to
be like them. Well, I tell you we are not like them. I don’t think
anyone can keep up with the Class of ’70.
