Photos from 2007 Survivors Reunion


Some photos from the 2007 Survivors Memorial Reunion in Indianapolis. 

Photos include the following:

1)Survivor Jack Miner 2) Survivors at the Memorial Service 2007, 3) Survivor Paul McGinnis 4) Survivor Donald McCall, 5) Survivor Sam Lopez with his wife, 6) Survivor George Horvath, 7) Survivor Edgar Harrell, 8) Survivor Harold Bray, 9) Survivor William Akines, 10) Survivor Harold Eck escorted by his friend Master Chief Geroge Harris 11) Survivor Vic Buckett escorted by his grandsons, 12) Survivor Granville Crane, 13) Survivor LD Cox, 14) Survivor Erwin Hensch, 15) Survivor Ken Lanter, 16) Survivor Mike Kuryla, 17) Survivors Giles McCoy (Survivor Organization Chairman) & Mike Kuryla (Survivors Organization Vice-Chairman), 18) Survivor Eugene Morgan, 19) Survivor Florian Stamm

Many of these pics were taken at the Memorial Service where the Survivors are escorted in by local military personnel as well as members of the Young Marines.  One survivor (Vic Buckett) was escorted by his two grandsons that are in the Navy.  I apologize for not having all the names of all the young people involved, but it is truly touching to see the two generations together for the Memorial Service.

great pics...were the young sailors there as escorts? How inspiring the old salts must be to them. Would love captions for the pics. I noticed a young marine there too, was he there for a marine survivor?

Does anyone know if there Is going to be another reunion planned for the Indy survivors? I would like to know so that I can attend it and meet some of these wonderful heroes. These great men aren't going to be with us much longer as the infirmities of old age claim them for the ages.
