Announcing the 2017 Delta Company Reunion
September 21st to September 24th
The board has selected the Sheraton Pentagon City Hotel in Arlington VA as this years reunion. Were excited about returning to the Sheraton which was where we held the 2014 reunion. The selection process starts with a vote at each years reunion of the top three locations. Then we do a financial analysis to determine the cost, the hotel rating and the areas of interest. The Sheraton offered the biggest bang for the buck and the area has an abundance of sights to see. A news letter will be emailed to each of you giving the complete details and information/links for hotel reservations and registration. Some of the highlights are:
- Room rates of only $129 a night
- Free breakfast
- Tour of the Marine Corps National Museum
- Parking for only $5 a day
- Free pizza party
- Free shuttle from the airport
- Rates are good from 3 days prior to the reunion and 3 days after, for those who want to extend their time for vacation.
- Free hotel rooms for winners of the drawing for those who register early
We are looking forward to seeing all of you at the reunion.
If you look closely at the picture above, you will note that all the Marines pictured are bowing their heads. That’s because they’re praying. This incident took place at a recent ceremony honoring the birthday of the corps, and it has the ACLU up in arms. “These are federal employees,” says Lucius Traveler, a spokesman for the ACLU, “on federal property and on federal time… For them to pray is clearly an establishment of religion, and we must nip this in the bud immediately.” When asked about the ACLU’s charges, Colonel Jack Fessender, speaking for the Commandant of the Corps said, “To hell with ACLU! GOD Bless Our Warriors. Send the ACLU to Afghanistan! Then watch those SONS OF BITCHES pray.” May God Bless America, One Nation Under GOD! Semper Fi
