2021 REUNION CHANGE:

The Reunion Committee enthusiastically asked that the 2021 Reunion be moved from Chicago to Ft. Worth, which was scheduled for 2023, and Chicago can now be 2023.  I did some due diligence, and passed my approval on to the Chairman of the Board, Pete Post, who liked the move as well.  Therefore, the Third Marine Division Annual Family Reunion will be in Ft. Worth, Texas at the Ft. Worth Radisson hotel, September 13 - September 19, 2021.  The room rate is $119/night + taxes, including a complimentary buffet breakfast and complimentary parking.


Reasons for the change:

Chicago is not a safe place to go now.

The hotels in Ft. Worth and Chicago each agreed to exchange the reunion dates 2021 and 2023 at the same rates.

Quite a few people have reached out to say they would not go to Chicago next year because of the civil unrest.

Ft. Worth seems reasonably safe at the moment.  I called the Ft. Worth police department to get their take.  I talked to Officer Cliff Miller, a Navy Veteran, who encouraged our coming.  The line would look like this:

  • Ft. Worth 2021 - Central part of the country
  • San Diego 2022 - West (80th Anniversary of the founding of the Third Marine Division at Camp Elliott, San Diego, September, 1942)
  • Chicago 2023 - Central
  • Washington DC 2024 - East

Of course we don't know what 2021 will look like anywhere.  We can only make decisions on what we know now.

Really looking forward to a Reunion.  I'm hopeful of less drama than we had these last few months.

Semper Fidelis,
