A letter from President David Greer

Fellow alumni and friends,

My name is David Greer, elected President of the society’s board in April. I’m happy to report that immediate past president Don Hulslander is still very much a part of our society and board. He has been very helpful in this transition. His eight years of presidential service brought our society to the highest levels of achievement and esteem within OSUAA. We’ve enjoyed the support of our members through your attendance at events, your in-kind donations and your encouragement and advice.

Building off the tremendous foundation that Don has built, I intend to share news and event updates with our membership base throughout the year. These notes will describe more about the background of board members and our vision for how the society can grow and excel.

But the big emphasis of this note is to announce the upcoming availability of tickets for our annual Homecoming Tailgate. The date for this year’s event is Saturday, 5 October. The opponent is the always-dangerous Michigan State. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. inside Ohio Stadium.

Since this is a “premium” game, this year’s price is higher than usual at $157. However, we were able to keep the meal price down (still $15), and we’re confident that you will find the rivalry, other Homecoming events, the opportunity to meet fellow alumni, Cadets, and our new Cadre will make the trip back to Columbus worth that expense.

Alumni who are members of the society AND of OSUAA will get priority access to buy tickets through September 3. Any remaining tickets are open to all Army ROTC alumni. As has been the recent case, you may buy up to four tickets, even if you are already a season-ticket holder.

The call-in registration window will open Tuesday, 20 August and close Thursday, 19 September. Visit https://arotc.alumni.osu.edu/event/2019-homecoming-tailgate/ to learn more.

Other dates to mark on your calendars:

Thursday, 19 March 2020 – Spring Awards and Hall of Fame Reception

Friday, 20 March 2020 – Senior Breakfast

For all of these events, whether you attend or not, please consider sponsoring the meal of a cadet (or 2, or more!) at $15–$25.

Buckeyes lead the way!
David Greer, ’67, President
