We are still reviewing the travel details to visit the WWII Museum which happens to be 3 miles away from the Hotel so; pack a pair of sneakers; LOL - just kidding. We may be able to shuttle ourselves depending on how many automobiles we have available. There are also 3rd party Company Shuttle Services available as well. Laurie said we can work out these details at a later date.


Please forward this email as appropriate, to any perspective candidates that I may have overlooked since I am working from a very limited EMAIL distribution list.


More information will be forthcoming.

It's great to see the plans came together and were finalized. I hope I can attend too, but going to two reunions that month, will be really over-stretching my budget. :wacko:


Maybe it will be possible to drive down? Dunno! Well whatever happens, I am glad that they are still able to get together and will be able to see the WWII Memorial in DC. :14_1_107v:

If anyone cannot make it to the DC reunion because of expense or distance, please consider coming out to PA this September. Captain John Fallon and the rest of the 36th, have cordially extended an invite to the VI Corps engineer units, including the 1108th. Please see the forum listing in this reunion section for further details. :armata_PDT_37:
