Darrell, this year's Guantanamo Bay reunion will be in Buffalo/Niagara Falls, NY.  I don't know if Garland Summerall will be there or not.  I met him at our Gettysburg reunion in 2009.  Bill Gazar was with us in Branson and I enjoyed the time that we got to spend together.  Try to make it to Buffalo, August 23-26.  You can check out website for further details.
