DATES: October 14-17, 2021
Due to many issues, we have decided to once again cancel the Quantico Reunion. We received an email this morning from the reunion coordinator at Quantico. The virtual combat simulator and firing simulator tours have been cancelled and there are no replacements. Base access may be disallowed at any time due to Covid conditions in the surrounding area. The other problem we face is the fact that travel and gathering may be unsafe. Since all of us are in our 70’s and many of us have health problems we feel it wise not to tempt fate. Vietnam didn’t kill us. It would be cruel to die of Covid.
I will return any uncashed checks and will send refund checks to those of you who paid by card.
Please don’t forget to cancel any room reservations and flights.
Thanks to those of you who registered. If you have questions please contact me. 614-294-8402.
p.s. We will keep you posted on this website to upcoming events, dates, and reunion information as we move forward in our planning for 2022. Stay healthy and safe. Semper Fi!
Marine Corps Base Quantico (commonly abbreviated MCB Quantico) is a United States Marine Corps installation located near Triangle, Virginia, covering nearly 55,148 acres (86.169 sq mi) of southern Prince William County, Virginia, northern Stafford County, and southeastern Fauquier County. Used primarily for training purposes, MCB Quantico is known as the “Crossroads of the Marine Corps”.
In 2001, the base was designated as part of the Quantico Marine Corps Base Historic District by the National Register of Historic Places. This district includes 122 buildings, two landscapes, a sculpture, and a water tower located within the Main side area of the base.
The U.S. Marine Corps’ Combat Development Command, which develops strategies for U.S. Marine combat and makes up most of the community of over 12,000 military and civilian personnel (including families), is based here.
