Deyo Post 1327, are Darcy Jaeger Brand and her father Arnold Jaeger, Claudia Bracaliello, David Rikard, Gene Every, Michael Meli, Peter Tocci, Larry Hill, Glen Bellomy, Schuyler Minew (SeaBees) and Ronald Cline (SeaBees).

When traveling off the mountain you are sure to meet up with someone you know. Met up with Pam Fancher and then Elliott Brainard got to see Pam’s parents, Ron and Freda Fancher. Although they were all there for medical purposes, everyone is on the mend or recovered.
