will be held April 5 – 8:
The reunion hotel is the Westin Washington Dulles Airport Hotel in the
Washington, D.C. area. To make room reservations call 703-793-3366 and
ask for “Reservations”. You will be transferred to the
Desk and by using the term “OCS at Fort Knox” you will get the reunion
room rate of $89.00 plus tax for a total of just under $100.
for two is included in the room rate as is free parking, and there is
no extra charge if you travel with your pets. For room reservations
other than the April 5-8 dates the room rate is a steal at $124 plus
tax. By booking a room reservation you are also registering for
reunion as the reunion organizer, David Read of Class 27-68, will from
time to time receive a listing of those who have reserved rooms.
The Westin’s website is www.westindulles.com.
Because there is such a variety of museums and
memorials in the D. C.
area to choose from there will be no organized tours like there was in
Louisville and San Antonio. The Westin offers a free shuttle to
nearby Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum or you can walk to it from the
hotel. You can also take the shuttle to the nearby Metro station
board a train to downtown D.C. to tour the museums and memorials.
D.C. trolley system with its different routes offers a “Get on-Get off”
daily pass to tour the numerous sights. David will keep those
individuals who make room reservations in the
loop about the reunion agenda such as it will become. As more
are worked out and finalized they will be posted here.
