On Tuesday 8 July 2014 Alvin C York Chapter of the 82nd Airborne Association met at Al Conrad's home on Ocee Street in Ooltewah. We enjoyed a meal of hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, cole slaw, baked beans and cold drinks. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed taking the grand tour of both Al's Airborne Bunker basement man cave and his garage workshop where he assembles miniature military figures mostly airborne genre. This event was so successful that we are making it an annual event.
