71st Transportation Battalion 2009 Reunion
June 24 - June 28, 2009
Nashville, Tennessee
This year we held our reunion at the HOLIDAY INN OPRYLAND/AIRPORT.
Karen Morrissey - Larry Stephenson - Sarah Vrabcak
First, I would like to thank the folks in the photo above.    On  the  left is  Karen Morrissey,  Group Travel Manager from Anchor Trailways & Tours.   Karen was responsible for setting up all of our  tours  and transportation to
our events.  I'm sure you will all agree she did an outstanding job.   We highly recommend her to other groups.    Center in the  photo is  Larry Stephenson, Group Sales Manager, Holiday Inn Opryland/Airport.    Larry
specializes in military reunions and works closely  with  the RFN (Reunion Friendly Network Inc.).  Needless to say,  Larry went  out of his way to make our reunion a successful and memorable event.  If your  group  is  
going  to  have  a  reunion  in  Nashville,  you  really  need  to talk with Larry.   Last,  but definitely  not  least,  is  Sarah Vrabcak,  Catering Sales Manager,  Holiday  Inn  Opryland/Airport.   Sarah  set  up  and  coordinated
our Saturday evening banquet and Sunday morning private breakfast buffet.    The food was great,  everything  was  on  time  and well run.   Great job Sarah!  I would also like to thank Julie Rose, Office Coordinator,  
Holiday Inn Opryland/Airport. I initially worked with Julie until she went on maternity leave. Once again, we want to thank everyone at the Holiday Inn Opryland/Airport for making our reunion a very special event that we
will long remember.
