Announcements
  •   2018 OCS at Fort Knox All Class Reunion 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 Reservation 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.  Breakfast 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 the 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 the 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 and board a train to downtown D.C. to tour the museums and memorials.  The 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 details are worked out and finalized they will be posted here.
