  Last Big Great 189th AHC Reunion

 OCTOBER 3-7, 2018




A great itinerary is planned.  Thursday:  A tour of Arlington National Cemetery, Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.  A tour of the Vietnam Memorial Wall with a special ceremony to honor those of the 189th AHC who were killed in Action during Vietnam and also tour adjoining Memorials.  Friday s tour we are still working on but plans are for a tour of a new Museum that just opened near the Capital.  Saturday s tour will be of the Hazy Center the Air and Space Museum near Dulles.  This is a reunion you will not want to miss.  If you have never been to a 189th reunion or it has be a few years since you attended one you will be over whelmed by the family we have built.  You just don t know what you have been missing.

Our hotel will be the Hilton Washington Dulles Airport.  Room rates will be $119 for two people per room and this will include a free breakfast for each and free parking.  This hotel has hosted the Vietnam Helicopter Crewmembers Association several times and I have stayed there before.  They will be a great host and have agreed to several things like we had in Colorado Springs last May.  Reservations will start probably in February 2018.  We hope to have the itinerary worked out by then.  Yes this will result in a 30 minute bus tour across town.  We chose this area once again because of the parking and other restrictions in the DC area. 

The 189th AHC Reunion team has been working hard to make this all possible for just you.  T O, Melba and Bobbye made a trip to the Dulles area to look at hotels in October after T O, Melba and I were there in August for a class.  Lonnie and Pat Welch, T O and Melba and Bobbye and I recently spent a week together in Mississippi deciding which hotel and what tours.  It is great to have a team to work with.

More information will be coming as we get into the New Year.
