We are blessed to have a wonderful staff of experienced reunion management team members. Together we represent over 200 years of experience managing military reunions!
General Manager, Dina Coffey, purchased Military Locator and Reunion Service in January of 2012. She plans to continue the long-standing tradition of excellent reunion services that have always been offered by the staff of Military Locaotrs, as her parents Larry and Brenda Eckard transition (oh so very slowly!) into their golden retirement years (and those of you who know Larry know he's not one to sit around and do nothing! He's not in any big hurry to retire! :) )
Founder, Past President
CW3, US Army Retired
Larry learned to walk, joined the Army, let the Army pay for college, fought in three wars, and retired from the Army. During that time he managed to get married and help raise three children. After retiring from the Army he and his wife started a military reunion management company which they operated for almost 26 years. Now serves as a consultant to Premier Reunion Services, LLC.
Co-Founder, Past Vice President
Chief Negotiator, Sales Manager
Brenda is a native North Carolinian who has lived in various overseas countries, as well as stateside, as she served with her husband Larry, an officer in the US Army. She is a wife, mother, grandmother, and reunion planner, and loves them all! She helped start MLandRS 25 years ago, and has made a multitude of great friends along the way!
Customer Service and Accounting
Customer Service, Accounting
After starting with Military Locators as a college intern in 1998, she joined the company full time upon her graduation. She is skilled in all aspects of running our office, particulary in going through hotel bills and making sure we only pay what we really owe. Her attention to detail simply cannot be praised enough!
Memory Book Editor
Memory Book Editor
After growing up five years younger than Larry, you just wouldn't believe the stories she can tell! She came to work for MLandRS and has transformed what started off as a very good idea, into a treasured reunion keepsake. The Reunion Memory Book is one of the most loved reunion keepsakes our attendees have ever had. Even folks who can't make it to the reunion call in and order a copy of the book, so they can keep up with how much fun happened at the reunion!
Karen came into this world about 10 years behind Larry, so she doesn't have quite as many stories to tell about his growing up (since, after all, he went in the Army shortly after he learned to walk.) After retiring as an elementary school teacher, she joined MLandRS as editor of the newsletters we produce for about half our reunion groups. She does an excellent job organizing the literary contributions and coming up with idea prompts for new stories!
