On Saturday September 3rd, the M.V.C.C. was
again invited to attend the annual K.I.A. (Killed In
Action) flag raising ceremony, swap meet, and military vehicle display at J&S Surplus in Moss Landing.
This year's event broke the record for being the largest to date. The vendor area was packed full of
sellers, as every spot had been sold. The live band
kicked-out the tunes all day long, and the BBQ
meats were very tasty and affordable. Quite a few
club members attend this event, some drove from far
away. We even had a visit from our club members
that own the Vietnam Huey.
The raising of the flags, as well as the guest speakers, were very moving. Fellow M.V.C.C. member,
Jimmy Gilbertson, is the main sponsor and organizer for this annual fun-filled event. Some of the
members present were: George Escobedo, Tim Colburn, Louie Escher, Jerry & Donna Mambretti,
Chris & Kim Jorgensen, Brad & Laura Carrott, Kurt
& Joann Lesser, along with myself.
Our fall meet at Tower Park was again a huge success! Lots of swap meet deals, fun, food, and fellowship.
Veteran's Day is coming and lots of parades are happening in various areas. I hope most of you can participate on this very patriotic day.
Since this will be published after our Fall meet at Camp
Delta/Tower Park, I hope we all had a good time.
I’m still busy working on my “digital age” challenge, and
there are a few issues to deal with, but overall I’m enjoying
the fellowship of the “new” Board.
I’ve had a few membership requests come through so it
reminds me to remind you to save your pennies to re-up
your membership. We’re working on new cards. I can just
see you jumping for joy (it’s a little scary).

The Castle Air Museum open cockpit day on Sept. 4th was another success as usual.
There was a large turnout of visitors checking out the planes as well as the military
vehicles on display. There was a Dodge WC12, slat grill jeep, 40mm bofors and the
museums M422 Mighty Mite along with several of the permanent display emergency
vehicles. A lot of fun was had by all. A few events to announce:
Oct. 1st - 21st Annual Emergency Vehicle Display Show & Law Enforcement
Recruitment Fair in Ripon, CA. If anyone is planning on attending, a follow up on any
MVs present would be wonderful. This would be a great show to display the
crossover vehicles that fit into the MV class as well as emergency response class.
Nov. 11 - Veteran’s Day Parade & Military Vehicle Show Parade: 10am – Downtown
Bakersfield, CA Military Vehicle Show – 2-7pm. More info on the club website.
Nov. 11 - Fresno Veteran’s Day parade. I will be getting more info on the parade and
have it posted on the website. If anyone has info, please let me know.
That’s all I know of going on in the valley soon. If there are any more parades or
events happening, please let me know right away so I can get the info posted.
As usual, any follow up articles and pictures from these events would be great.

October 2011 North Bay West VP report by John Neuenburg
By the time you read this the Camp Delta Fall meet will be history. Hope everybody made it home in one piece and
had success doing whatever you did. My Travis Air Show photos are up on the Gallery page on our website, and maybe some from prior events if Sean can squeeze them in. The Pacific Coast Air Museum Air Show in Santa Rosa was
another good show featuring many vintage and modern military aircraft plus aerobatic acts. Michael France reports 22
MVs on display from motorcycle to halftrack and all sizes of trucks. Jim Neider is a great POC for this and some other
North Bay events. This newsletter may not arrive in time to let you know about the Yountville Parade on October 2,
but if so, contact POC Lee Hoskins at 707-328-2316. Parade is at noon and he reports it’s the next best parade in the
region after the Petaluma Veterans Day Parade. Speaking of Petaluma, if you want to be a part of a 40+ MV parade on
Nov. 11, sound off to Jim Neider at 707-823-2192. When you are on his radar screen he will phone you with any
news. Pre-stage at the Veterans Memorial rear parking lot by 1100, move to staging area by noon and parade at 1300.
Informal display after the parade back at the vet’s hall and they will likely be serving hot dogs plus the bar is always
open. Back to October – if anyone wants a great place to watch the Fleet parade on Saturday Oct. 8, may I recommend
the east parking lot of the St. Francis Yacht Club? No reserved area planned so get there before 0830. If anyone wants
to meet other MVers, I will be the clearing house and put in touch with others. See www.fleetweek.us for general
event info including ship tours. Air show is Saturday and Sunday with ship parade Saturday morning only.
Navy League Fundraiser Car Show Report
By John Neuenburg
I finally got the M20 back on the road and on 9/11 drove it to Oakland on 9/11 for the Navy League car show hosted
by the Warehouse Bar & Grill. Light turnout of cars and only Willy Denninger, Ed Roberts and I displayed MVs. It
was nice to see “long lost” MVCCer Ed with his trusty ’42 GPW. Ed promises to “re-up.” Willy brought his MUTT.
Event was a fundraiser for the gigantic BBQ the Navy League Oakland Council does for the troops on Columbus Day
Monday in San Francisco during Fleet Week.

Camp Delta 2012 and 2013 Spring Activities Being Planned
By John Neuenburg, Camp Delta Activities Coordinator
Unless we decided something different at the recent Fall Tower Park meet, the displays next April are shaping up as
“Concours d’Eleguns” for MVs with mounted or towed ordnance, 0830-1130 on Friday. Dave Aro is POC,
[email protected] Deactivated or non-guns please, for example no firing pin.
“Engineer & Work Vehicles” – those not designed for carrying general cargo or personnel. 1300-1600 Friday. I am
POC, see contact info elsewhere
“All IHC Trucks” for International-brand MVs. Saturday 1330-1630. Paul De Nublio is POC,
[email protected] This replaces Motorcycles & Scooters however we can create a casual display and
photo op for these if you like. Will probably schedule the formal motorcycle display in 2013.
We’d like to see seminars or discussion groups at these meets. Any ideas?
We don’t schedule much for the Fall meet but we’d like to because we’d like to grow the meet. Anybody have any
ideas? For Spring 2013, let’s do “U.S. Navy and U.S.M.C. Vehicles!” Plenty of time for you to scrape, paint, and

Saturday, September 10th, John Bodnar and I set up at the Rim High School Car Show near Lake Arrowhead
in the mountains above San Bernardino. Enlisting help from our own crew and help from some of the high
school kids, we had .30s. mounted on 2 Jeeps, a .30 cal. on a low tripod and a .30 cal. on an Anti Aircraft
tripod, all with belts of shiny ammo that attracted the young, the old and everyone in between. John really
went all out. He brought both of his Jeeps and their trailers, cammo netting for both shade covers, kitchen
equipment, rifles, radios...you name it, we had it on display. He even brought a flag pole for his 48 star flag
and a mortar! I added my Jeep to make it a threesome. There was lots of time for kids and Kodak moments, a
few WWII veterans with good stories and we even cooked up some grub. My fiancée, Mary, was in charge
of "Mary's Mess" and kept us well nourished. John's gal, Julie, spent lots of time answering questions from
the nearly 1000 spectators who showed up. A local Boy Scout troop did a wonderful job of raising the flag at
the beginning of the activities and they were followed by a memorial ceremony for 9-11. At the end of last
year's show, the organizers said they would add a couple more trophy classes. It's a good thing they did because both John and I drove away with a trophy. It was a fabulous day and we are all looking forward to next
year's event.
