Lois Reed
Color Guard 1975-1977
I left Jersey in Oct '86 to move to Orlando (and never looked back) :O( I met and married my ex-husband there who was a Navy Seabee. That's a whole other story in itself! We got stationed in Gulfport, MS; got divorced here; and here I stayed. My parents are gone so it's just me and my sister now. They were in Orlando, that's why I moved there. They got orders to Gulfport a year after us and her husband retired here. I just got done working for the Navy as a Civilian Federal Employee after 19 years. I'm now looking for another job! I am a Hurricane Katrina survivor. Yes, we rode the storm out; we are only about 8 miles from the gulf. That was the longest 12 hours of our lives! We sustained minimal damage, which is a miracle. I tell you what...another one comes like that, I'm out of here! I'd love to hear from everyone, so keep in touch!

I bid work for a commercial electrical construction firm and when I have free time I like to jeep off-road, surf fish and cycle. I have great memories of my (unfortunately brief) time with the corps, the members and the "beastly" bari line.

Bill is doing well & living is south Jersey.  He has 2 boys. Chris T calls me every Monday just to touch base...usually on his way to the beach to surf.  One of my most prized possessions is my "Miss Mellophone" sash that the second sopranos made me in 1975...too funny!!!  So happy this site was created...GREAT JOB!!!

Michael Fastuca
Drumline/Baritone 1967-1976
My initial Saints enrollment was in the Drum Line and I then moved to Baritone (1968). I left the Corps in 1976 and relocated to Virginia in what was the beginning of a very interesting career. After a tour in our main headquarters, I moved to England in 1980 where most of my time was spent traveling throughout Europe. I returned to a position in Virginia in 1983 which provided the opportunity to travel to Europe, Africa, South West Pacific and South America. I left Virginia in 1988 for Australia and returned to Virginia in 1991. I had numerous tours within Northern Virginia which provided the opportunity to visit a number of locations in the US. In 1998 I left for the Western Pacific where I spent a couple years and returned to Virginia in December 2000. I had another tour of service in the Washington, D.C. area and then retired from government service December 2001. I have since hired on as an Associate with the consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton.

What a great time we had growing from a parade corps to a highly competitive corps in the DCI! I sure do miss that period of time. It was great to see so many of the family at the initial reunion in NJ last year and I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the next reunion!
