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.
VETERANS...WE WANT YOU TO JOIN US!
