C5BDI is a proud Gold sponsor of the 64th annual Anniversary Reunion from 19-21 October 2017 in Fort Walton Beach, FL. The reunion includes many activities to enhance camaraderie, support our injured and the families of our fallen, and foster participation. CCA members range from 19-year-old active duty combat controller (CCT) warriors to 90-year-old retired veterans and many past and present Combat Controllers in between. They represent some of the most decorated airmen in our nation’s history, and many will be present to share war stories and relax with teammates.
Over the last two years, through generous donations, the CCA has provided more than $100,000 to support the CCT community. From reunion events, scholarships, medical travel and treatment for our ill and wounded and their families, specialized medical devices not covered by Tricare or the DoD, and memorial services and celebrations of life for several deceased warriors. Additionally, donations sponsor the Honor Graduate from Combat Control School and the John Chapman Award at the Special Tactics Training Squadron.

Thank you to the CCA for this opportunity to contribute and giveback!
