Reunion Documentary

If you have ever attended a 6994th and/or an EC-47 Association reunion, this is for you.

Those of you that attended our 2019 reunion here, just outside of Nashville, and took part in the Recording Studio session may remember Cory and Lisa, the songwriters that composed 3 songs for our squadron and ran most of the recording session. If you were not able to take part in the recording session, play the video on our website at this link:

They are at it again and need your input. They want to do a documentary about the 6994th and our reunions. As we age and our group becomes smaller, they (and we) feel that it is important to make a record for ourselves and our posterity so that the people and story of the 6994th Security Squadron continues after we are gone.

What they are asking for is this:

Create a short video answering any/all/none of the questions below, or just talk about your feelings relating to the reunions.

OR

Write down your remembrances of any reunions you have attended.

Send them to Rich Krejsa at rkrejsa@bellsouth.net who will forward them to Cory and Lisa.

For those of you that are attending the reunion this year, Cory and Lisa will be there and you can video your thoughts while you are there.

Also, concerning those songs that we recorded in Nashville, Cory was not pleased with how two of them turned out. As a result, she is going to re-master them during our reunion this year. If you are on the original recording but would like to add your voice to another part of the song (such as reciting the names of our KIAs) or, if you were not there but want to add your voice to the recording, this is your chance.

They are planning on having the songs remastered and handed out at the banquet on Saturday night, but the documentary will take a little longer and will be distributed at a later date.

I hope you will take part in this important event.

With that in mind, here is what they have sent me to distribute.
