Special Casper Reunion After 40 Years

Lincoln, NH (Oct 2008) - Caspers Dennis Bradley, George Kenney, Michael Del Monaco and Zelner Houchin all met at the Beacon Resort in the White Mountains of New Hampshire to view the fall foliage change. We all had our wives with us and had a wonderful time during our reunion.

This was the first time that any of us had seen Mike Del Monaco since our tour in Vietnam (40 years ago). This was a special time for all of us as we enjoyed sharing many stories and the time together.
