Years ago the veterans met to share their post war lives, celebrate their achievements and continue their friendships.
Nowadays, that remains true with our veterans but includes more of our Legacy membership. Children, grand-children and even great-grandchildren...along with nieces, nephews and cousins. We've become a family of the 65th Infantry Division.
At the reunions we have fun exploring, but also share research notes of family history research as well as photos and memories.
Come join us to create shared memories, friendship and travel in a new location each year. We explore military history, museums and local attractions...and some really great meals together.
Thank you to all who were able to attend our “Reunion of Remembrance” at Camp Shelby and make it a wonderful success. For those who were unable to be there, I hope you had the opportunity to view some of the proceedings with the live-stream opportunity provided by Camp Shelby or have had the opportunity to view some of our photos and videos on our web-page (65thdiv.com) or on our Facebook page.
As we now turn to the planning for our 2022 reunion, we once again are facing planning and scheduling difficulties as a result of the ongoing pandemic. Many of the facilities and features we were considering are closed or restricted for large groups. As a result, we were unable to announce our 2022 reunion site at our Camp Shelby gathering. We hope to be in a position to do so early in the first quarter of the coming year.
Still under consideration are Washington, D.C., with a focus on the Holocaust and the 65th Infantry Division’s role in concentration camp liberation and humanitarian efforts, as well as a visit to the new U.S. Army Museum just outside of Washington. Alternative plans are considering Colorado Springs, New Orleans, and several other interesting locations.
Once a commitment is made, it will be posted on both our webpage, as well as on Facebook. Stay tuned – we hope to have an update for you as soon as possible.
Looking forward to seeing you at our next reunion,
David Ream, President
65th Infantry Division Association
