Maj (Ret.) John Lewis passed away

Al Huddleston called me earlier this morning to inform us that Maj (Ret.) John Lewis (CCA LM-0236) had passed away earlier this morning. As most of you are aware, he wrote the Red Beret Poem that you often see on the CCA Reunion banquet program. He recently attend the San Antonio Mini-Reunion, unfortunately his last. Alvin will keep me abreast of plans for a service/funeral. He will take care of flowers or donation to a charity if that is requested and we will reimburse him up to the $100 amount we set earlier this year.

More to follow when arrangements are final. Thanks.
