This was the first organized reunion of overseas educators and was held in Concord, California. The name ODDSARA came from Overseas DoD Schools Annual Reunion Association. This first meeting was hosted by John Egan. The name ODDSARA was used for five years, and further reunions were held in Orlando, FL; Chicago, IL; Bremerton, WA; and Flagstaff, AZ. In 1994, at the sixth reunion in Las Vegas, the name was changed to DoDDS VI.
