Group gathers at museum for reunion

Bill Davenport has been hosting a colorful group at the West of the Pecos Museum recently.

An informal reunion of United States Navy buddies and wives were in town for a few days, visiting and enjoying Pecos.

The visitors are Dick Koeing (Carpenter's Mate) of Newbury Park, Calif.; Fred Purser (Carpenter's Mate), with his wife, Brenda of Pilot Point, Tx.; Zack Buchalew of Pinevill, La. and his wife, Frances.

Local historian, Davenport, (Carpenter's Mate), Pecos, hosted the group to the grand tour of the West of the Pecos Museum.
