The final gathering of the Alamo Scouts was a reunion of one.

Connie Vineyard, 90, who traveled from Madison, Wis., for events in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, was the only member of the pioneering special Army reconnaissance unit from World War II able to attend.

But about 55 historians, relatives and friends of Alamo Scouts joined him at the unit’s last reunion. It included a stop Friday at the New Mexico National Guard Bataan Memorial Museum in Santa Fe.
