2018 Reunion Overview

USMC TBS A1-68
Reunion 50.5 May 2018

Reunion Hotel:
Fredericksburg Hospitality House Hotel
Reunion Dates:
Arrive Tuesday 1 May 2018
Depart Sunday 6 May 2018 (after Sun AM class meeting)
Events Wed – Sat all days.

We are pricing all reunion events as a per person package, rather than a la carte as last time.
$300 per person for reunion registration paid in 2017 ($350 if paid in 2018.)

We are filling in the Wednesday through Saturday dates with wonderful reunion events.

While there is some juggling to do, here is what you will likely enjoy (maybe not all, but we are trying). Plan to arrive Tuesday, May 1st and depart Sunday, May 6th.

  • Visit TBS to be briefed on the Infantry Officer Course, lunch with the Lieutenants, convoy and weapons simulation (yes, shoot them all!).
  • Visit to HMX-I for briefing on that storied unit, its mission and equipment.
  • Visit the FBI Training Academy and learn about the spectacular training taking place there. – –  –
  • Attend a live Civil War reenactment if the dates allow.
  • Three possible DC events:
    • I have requested an invite to the White House through Gen Kelly (who knows what those chances are).
    • Sunset Parade 8th & I (schedule for 2018 not announced yet, but hoping the opening parade is within our dates).
    • Library Of Congress tour; this is a place to see at least once in your life.
  • The National Museum of the Marine Corps for most of a day with the brand new wing and theater. Hoping for dinner there as well (if we can afford it).
  • A happy hour round of drinks and appetizers with a visit to the Globe & Laurel Fredericksburg – – Historic District for really neat tours and shopping
  • Food and drink in our Hospitality Suite throughout, with a possible pizza night event.
  • There are a lot of moving parts to this event, including bus transportation all over Northern Virginia (thanks Pat Finneran) which is an expensive commitment. Since we do not have all events finalized (waiting to hear from the White House), we cannot do a final budget quite yet. However, your early commitment to attending is the one major thing you can do to help. The earlier we buy, the more we save on our events.

Please note that reunion reservations are cancellable with reasonable cause with a full refund.

Financial Assistance To Attend:  We obtain free rooms and meals with our booking. And class members have already created a fund specifically to assist those who may need it to addend. Please, if financial constraints are an issue with your coming, at least chat with us about how we can make it easy for you to be there. Only two people will ever know: Ray Norton (Treas) and Bob Koury (Pres). Please email Ray ray.norton@nortonfamily.org to discuss.
