Thread: Reunion 2004
01-23-04, 03:20 PM #1
I didn't check the dates of may 20-24 but ya'll should try to go see a Sunset parade at Iwo Jima. I was at the Barracks for over 4 years, marched in hundreds of shows, I still get goosebumps when I see the Marines march from behind the memorial. Also, you get better seats, well grass at Iwo, and there is not nearly as much waiting around. I also have some good connections at 8th and I.

NOTHING is more impressive as the Sunset Parade and 8th and I. No Marine can watch that and NOT have a chill run down his spine, his chest swell with pride and a tear in his eye!!
Just another reason the Marines are the FINEST..period!

Roger, I found a good deal on a hotel last year, its the confort inn at exit 2 off 395, Colleen knows the info, we need to check this out, they were going to let us use the banquet room if we had 20 guest. Much better to drink at motel than to drink and drive around in DC. and the motel is new and much better price's.
JUSTSOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

If it is off 295, that means going across the WIlson Bridge while construction ins underway for anything on this side of the river - like the Pentagon, Arlington Ridge, the Cemetery - just something to think about.
Remember, Heather and I get to ride on the hog, too.

I don't mean this post to be nasty so don't take it that way but you must be on drugs or don't know much about DC, first if you go back and read I said 395 not 295 and the pentagon is about 4 miles from the motel, the 8th and I is maybe 5 miles and Viet Nam wall is maybe 5 miles, only bridge is 14th street bridge, no traffic, no construction, and most of all no stupid ass people like where we stayed last year. that motel was the pits, but If you like that go for it, i'm not staying in or even close to DC, I been there done that, no thanks, Alexandria is much better, nice town, nice bars, great food, and only 5 mile from all that we want to see.
Please don't be mad at me when you read this, I just want what I think is best for everybody, last year i had a deal worked for free banquet roo, and you can get a car with your room for 10.00 more, dont know what the price will be this year, Colleen is suppose to check it out for us. Even the motel close to where Collen lives would be better than staying in Dc to me.

I am not going to make ANY hotel decisions this year.
After the bull**it I had to put up with last year...
"I'm coming...no shows"
I had arranged a reasonable hotel..after all...you are just showering and sleeping...do you need special soaps on the tub!!
I had gotten a great rate because of the number that was supposed to show up. If this is Drifter and Freebirds reunion...then let Drifter and Freebird plan it!
I had arranged a restaurant for us too but because not everyone showed up, we got a raw deal there too.
I had arranged the SGTMAJ's banquet afterwards...that is the only time I saw you Marine's actually enjoy being in DC.
I may or may not be there depending on my move to CT.
The sunset parades do not start until later in the spring and as many times as I have been there, it is well worth it.
