The Currahee! Newsletter

The Currahee! newsletter is published by Currahees for Currahees, with news and features of interest to veterans and active duty troops from all eras. It is normally published twice a year: a January issue which goes to all members, and a Summer issue for dues-paying members. It includes stories from our past, information about Association activities and projects, active duty narratives, and announcements about reunions and general veterans' issues. As resources permit and communication needs dictate, we may publish additional special issues for dues-paying members.

Reporters for each battalion are looking for material that you will find interesting and informative. Regular columnists look across the years and across the regiment for stories of general interest to all members. Write, eMail or call the reporters or newsletter editor, or any of the officers and members of the Board of Directors, and share with us your questions, suggestions, news items or concerns coming out of your experiences in the 506th.

We also encourage direct reader contributions. Each issue we will try to find and publish stories, essays, cartoons, drawings and poems written by active duty or veteran Currahees. If you are willing to share your creative ideas with other Currahees, please contact the newsletter editor. The only requirements are that your contributions are original; that they arise from your Currahee experience, and there are no legal or financial restrictions on publication. We will honor requests to keep the identities of contributors private if requested.
