REUNION 2017 - SILVER ANNIVERSARY REUNION!!!
05 March 2017 Update:
I've received updated information on reunion items from Henry Ostaszewski and Debbie Crist. Both are at work finalizing our hotel contract and Birthday dinner arrangements. The next Battalion Runner will be issued in mid-late April 2017. I hope to have completed arrangements to announce in that issue but if not will immediately send out a special issue once those arrangements are completed. Reunion notices will also by published in Leatherneck Magazine, and The VFW, American Legion, and DAV magazines during the summer. There is a very strong possibility 2/9 will have seating reserved on 11 November at The Wall for the Veteran's Day ceremonies and will also have honored guests from the Vietnam Memorial Committee addressing our reunion dinner. Please stand by for future announcements.

Our 24th Annual Reunion was attended by more than 175 Marines, friends and family from 8-12 November at the Marriott Residence Inn Rosslyn and Marriott Key Bridge Hotel, both in Arlington, VA. Now we are on to planning for the Silver Anniversary Reunion, our 25th, since Red Hill started looking for his fellow Marines and held his first in 1993.
We are again planning our reunion at both the hotels mentioned above. We have received outstanding support from the Residence Inn for our "home" from 8-12 November, and the Key Bridge for our reunion dinner on The Birthday, November 10th. We could not possibly hope for better treatment anywhere else. As soon as information becomes available I will post it here. Our plans are for the 2017 reunion to be a long weekend running from Wednesday, 8 November, through Sunday, 12 November, with our dinner being held on the evening of Friday, 10 November. MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!
