Vietnam Last Man’s Club gathers again

The area Vietnam Last Man’s Club met Saturday afternoon at the Towanda VFW Post, with all enjoying a buffet lunch and social time. In the front, from left, are John Schmeckenbecher, Warren Overpeck, Joe Wilcox, David Redding, Jack Krotzer and Charlie Strickland. Back: Dale McKay, Frank Barber, Richard Kuykendall, Jim Beebe, Gary Foster, Ed Moore, Dean Kuykendall and Rusty Eddy. Also attending but not shown were Corny Blokzyl and Roy Schrimp. The club is made up of veterans of the Vietnam War and numbers 25 members now. The last surviving member will inherit a bottle of wine, bought about 50 years ago. “I think by the time the last man is around he won’t want to drink it!” Overpeck joked.
