2nd Annual QOR Band Mess Dinner
Big improvement from last year. Not to say that last year's dinner was bad (although the food poisoning wasn't so fun - apparently another person from the band also got sick!) but this year's was closer to a traditional mess dinner. It was held in the 48th Sargeant's Mess and was table service instead of buffet.
Our guest speaker was some big general dude from the Air Force. He was no Bobby Harriett, but he was pretty funny.
Teddy O'Halloran (the only WWII vet left in our band) and I.
He landed on Juno Beach, June 6th, 1944, and was one of the few lucky enough to survive. An amazing gentleman, he loves to call us all his "girlfriends". :)
The band has decided to make this dinner an annual event. I'm looking forward to next year!
