“The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) National Cemetery Administration (NCA) Daily Burial Schedule allows the public to search for the committal service date, time, and cemetery for the scheduled burial of a Veteran, spouse, or other eligible family member.”   National Cemetery Administration – Daily Burial Schedule

The idea of an AMMO Breakfast all started one weekend at one of the Langley AMMO Breakfast. Joe Pliler from Goldsboro had attended this Breakfast and was talking with Jimmy Taylor about how nice it would be to have a Breakfast around home. Jimmy told Joe that he knew a good friend and AMMOTROOP from his time at Myrtle Beach AFB, that lives in Goldsboro. He told Joe to Call John Crocker, he’d be glad to help with getting a Breakfast started. On the way home from Langley, Joe called John and they talked about starting Goldsboro AMMO Breakfast. Joe and John talked for the next couple of weeks planning out logistics and how to get fellow AMMOTROOPS aware of the breakfast. During this time, Jimmy Taylor had put us in contact with Chief David Jamison. We three met at Lantern Inn restaurant, and discussed getting the veteran’s and Active Duty together for fellowship, comradery, sharing experiences and providing assistance for one another when needed. AMMO supporting AMMO!

2016 Moody Blues Ammo Fest aka M*A*S*H

Ammo troops and families from all over the Eastern United States made the trip to the Forward Operating Location, Jones Pecan Farm of Ray City, Georgia for the Annual Ammo Veterans Association Moody Blues Ammo Day. This year’s theme was our old MASH characters who we all grew up with on the Far East Network and the Armed Forces Network Radar, Klinger, Hawkeye, Hotlips and the gang. Ammo troops from as far away as Michigan, Virginia, Tennessee, Louisiana, Alabama, Florida, South and North Carolina and Virginia merged to celebrate along with the Active Duty Ammo Troops from Moody AFB, Home of the Famous A-10 Hogs, “The Flying Tigers”!

Activity began early on Thursday 29 September with the raising of the Ammo Flag at Ground Zero. Campers began arriving soon afterward in RVs, camping trailers and tents. Motels and Moody Billeting soon began check-ins of more Ammo troops. The smell of burgers, brawts, and hot dogs filled the air as the sound of laughter, greetings and stories got louder! The celebration had begun! Two four ship flyovers of A-10s wooed us late afternoon! Friday saw more and more arrivals as our Ammo Chiefs began appearing. We were honored this year with Chief O’Hern, Chief Zima, Chief Fick, Chief Wilson, Chief Whitten, and many more of Ammo’s Pride! Colonel Hopkins (ALCMs) had a great time with us and was appointed our commander in case there was trouble! Luckily we didn’t have to use him! What a great bunch of Ammo troops from Viet Nam, Cold War, Desert Storm and present day all celebrating what we know best as FAMMOLY.

3rd Annual Moody Blues Reunion Coin

Saturday October 1st, was a super day with well over a hundred Ammo Troops and their families enjoying the camaraderie once again of fammoly. Ammo Brother Joe Santua cooked us up a fine hog along with playing us a few songs. Ammo-Dog, Dave Bressler arrived. We had a wonderful raffle and auction to help raise funds. Ammo Sister Dolly Witt began singing us into the evening where karaoke got the attention of our Moody Ammo Troops. They did a fine job singing several songs that entertained the crowds. What a blessing to be able to recognize and enjoy being around our active duty folks. They are very special to all us, and we praise them for carrying on the Ammo Life. The party lasted throughout the evening.

Sunday brought a few sighs and lots of hugs. Everyone promised to keep in touch and to “Keep the Flame Burning” through social media and of course by telephone. The Ammo Veterans Association wants to thank everyone who participated in this year’s event and invites everyone back for Moody Blues Ammo Day October 7th, 2017!
