Wreath Laying at the War Memorial is the 9th!!!

Note to all of you planning on attending the reunion in Arlington this November. The wreath laying ceremonies at the War Memorial are happening on SATURDAY, November 9th, NOT on Sunday the 10th. Got final word from the Marine Corps today. Better plan on getting to town on the 8th if you want to make it!

Danny,
Had planned on being there in DC this year during the reunion...however, Patty and I changed our plans because we will be attending a special event with Danny Douglas, Bob Hengle and hopefully Johnnie Solis the weekend of November 23rd - 24th. As always, my first patrol will be to the Wall to remember and pay my respects to our Brothers...
I hope this finds you well...please give my regards to all of my 2/9 Brothers. Hopefully, 2/9s reunion will return to DC next year.
Take Care - Semper Fi.
Doug

Sorry you are going to miss it Doug. I was hoping you'd be there since there is a chance Joe Schroeder's brother will be coming up from the Houston area. He's been seeking closure on losing Joe at Khe Sanh back than for many years. If he does show up I'll be dragging him around to the Birthday/Wreath ceremony at the Iwo Memorial, to The Wall obviously, the Marine Corps Museum to see his brother's brick, and anywhere else the guy wants to go.

Semper Fi, and hope to see you next year with ALL the 2/9 guys in Arlington again.
