U.S. MARINE RAIDER REUNION 2017
From August 9th-11th, the U.S. Marine Raider Association & the U.S. Marine Raider Foundation will host a reunion for World War Il Marine Raiders in San Diego, California at the San Diego Town & Country Resort. The intent of the reunion is twofold: first it is an opportunity for these legends from our greatest generation to reunite, and second it is an opportunity to connect them to the current generation of U.S. Marine Raiders serving within the U.S. Marine Corps, Special Operations Command (MARSOC). Over a three-day period, our WWII Raiders will do just that by spending a day connecting with the Marines of the current generation during a visit to the current 1st Marine Raider Battalion located at Camp Pendleton, California where the WWII Raiders will have an opportunity to meet their legacy, view modern day equipment, learn about the current mission, and meet the Raider leadership within MARSOC. The WWII Raiders will host Raider to Raider meetings at the hotel where the WWII Raiders will share their experiences with the young Raiders and answer their many questions. The week will culminate in a 1940’s USO style dinner and dance at the Town and Country Resort for all the Raiders, their families and friends.
We are honoring our World War II Raiders by making both the registration and all reunion events half price for World War II Raiders, their wives and widows.
San Diego has so much to see and do that we’ve arranged with the hotel to honor the special Raider Rate of $110.00 a night plus taxes for three days before and after the reunion. Enjoy the city, see the world famous San Diego Zoo, visit the many museums and of course there’s always the beach! Visit www.sandiego.org for more information. There is a hop on, hop off trolley tour for only $39.95 that picks up at our hotel and would be a great way to see the sights before, during and after the reunion.
