Greetings Respected Soldier, Valued Friend and Honored Patriot!
We are very happy to announce this year’s 25th Infantry Division Survivors’ Reunion – the annual gathering of the 25th Infantry Division Association’s South Atlantic States Chapter. Hope you can join us! All 25th Division vets, their families and friends are welcome!!!
If you are reading this reunion notice and are a 25th Division veteran, it means you are alive and you are a survivor! Whether you were a member of the 25th Division when it was formed after Pearl Harbor or part of the attack force in August 1945 poised to invade Japan, or if you served honorably in the Korean War, or in Vietnam, Iraq or Afghanistan, or in peacetime, our country is in your debt! We like to show our appreciation to all of these Americans who have so courageously served their country and allowed us to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave!
We ask all those who plan to attend to reserve their hotel room and send in their attendance form as soon as possible. We have rooms and banquet facilities to accommodate 200. So don’t be left out! To help in our planning, PLEASE respond by March 15! Please note that all veterans returning their attendance forms by July 1 will receive a cap as a gift to be presented at our roll call on Thursday, August 3. We need this amount of time to order the customized caps.
When: Wednesday August 2 to Sunday August 6, 2017
Where: Hilton Rockville
1750 Rockville Pike
Rockville, Maryland 20852

If you know a buddy with whom you served, phone or write him, encourage him to come – and bring family and friends! Feel free to copy this form and send it to friends who might also be interested. Please help with heart and hand! Remember – this organization has always been a “family of friends” – all are welcome!
Veterans, please note what Bob Muzzy, our Chapter Founder always said: “We’re here today and gone tomorrow – you never know when your name will be called. This event will not pass your way again in this lifetime and there are no guarantees that there will be reunions in the hereafter. So sign up!”
We promise you a great time! Help with heart and hand! We need you, so come enjoy the memories. Your cooperation will help assure that this reunion will be a big success. Hope to see you in August!
