Remagen Bridge Society ends 25-year existence

Twenty-five years ago Ted Frison of E/395 got the bright idea of having an annual reunion of 99ers in the Denver CO, area. These 99ers told friends who also were WWII vets about our luncheon and eventually the 99ers were in the minority. Each guy got up and told an unbelievable story about his combat experience, all true.

What is important is that we are probably the only organization of 99ers attending in some cases for 25 years.

In 1995, 99ers attending were Charlie Cicero H/394, Elden House B/393, Stuart Been C/395, Rudy Zehnder C/395, Ron Dilling N/393, Bill Sears B/394, Buford Selvy D/395, Kurt Amuedo K/393, Mark Mueller D/394, George Aaron 1/393, Elliot Wager M/393, Lloyd Herren 3/393 and myself.

In 1995 we had about 25 in attendance. This past March we only had five there so this was our last reunion. We have even been photographed and our stories are preserved on CDs.
