1st Ranger Battalion and Gold Star Families 40th Anniversary Reunion 20-23 Aug 14

4 March 2014:

Update on the 40th Anniversary Reunion:

– Registration and banquet: Please get registered for the event and make your banquet selection soonest. We need everyone attending the banquet identified so we put sufficient wine on the tables. The wine is already paid for through donations. Part of the registration fee covers your picnic cost.

– Hotel: We have filled 87 rooms at the Marriott and I was able to secure 10 more rooms for us. Get the word out that these rooms are not limitless.

– Commemorative Items: Commemorative coins, T-shirts and 1/75 lapel pins are going on advance sale soon. Mike Waldron will need the money up front so he can get those items sent to production. You will be able to pick up your items at the Marriott during the event, or for a small handling and shipping fee Mike will mail them out o/a 1 July. Stand by for displays and ordering instructions.
